Holy Apostles has assumed stewardship of Seminary Journal, a journal formerly published by the Seminary Department of the National Catholic Educational Association from 1995 to 2014.

To maintain the library catalog, Holy Apostles has partnered with the NCEA to bring out the combined 2014 and 2015 editions. Holy Apostles will on its own publish a combined 2016/2017 and 2018 edition. Then, beginning in 2019, the Journal will return to three issues per year.

To receive a free PDF of the Journal every time it comes out, add your email address to the subscription bar below. The PDF will contain a link to the Amazon page where you’ll be able to purchase a printed version on demand if you want one. By taking printed copies of the the Journal 100% on demand, the Journal is able to avoid a large printing expense three times a year and the warehousing of back copies.

If you teach or study in a Catholic seminary in the United States or Canada, please consider sending an article to seminaryjournal@holyapostles.edu on one or more of the four dimensions of formation: intellectual, human, spiritual or pastoral.
