Redemptoris Mater Missionary Seminary
The RMMS is a diocesan, missionary and international seminary forming priests who, upon their ordination, will be incardinated in the Archdiocese of Toronto, while ready to serve anywhere in the world. RMMS shares the premises of St. Augustine’s Seminary in Scarborough.
St. Augustine’s Seminary
As the major seminary of the Archdiocese of Toronto, St. Augustine’s prepares candidates for ordained priesthood in the Catholic Church. The seminary is also mandated to form men and women aspiring to other ministries in the Church.
Office of Vocations
The office helps Catholics find their own particular and unique vocation (priesthood, religious and consecrated life or the permanent diaconate). The office also helps oversee Totus Tuus, which are week-long catechetical summer camps run in parishes.
