En Route Books and Media, LLC, in partnership with WCAT Radio, 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 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 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 seminaryjournal2021@gmail.com on one or more of the four dimensions of formation: intellectual, human, spiritual or pastoral.
