Notre Dame Seminary


Formation of Priests at St. Rita Parish

Serving as the home of theological formation for the Archdiocese of New Orleans since 1923, Notre Dame Seminary prepares men for the priesthood from across the southern United States.

Beginning in the summer of 2016, Notre Dame Seminary and St. Rita have chosen to partner with each other, giving the seminarians a parish home for some of their apostolic works and providing the parish with enthusiastic ministers to encourage lay leadership.

Aside from various apostolic works in the parish, the seminarians join the St. Rita community for the Sunday 10:30am Mass.
