The Seminary of the Good Shepherd in Homebush is the place of formation for priests for the Archdiocese of Sydney, other dioceses from within NSW, as well as receiving some students from overseas. The seminary seeks to provide an environment and a community that fosters and nurtures the calling that a man experiences to the diocesan priesthood.
It is the seminary life, firstly in its prayer and community, that provides the environment where a vocation can be nurtured. The seminary also provides formation in the development of the human character in the spiritual life, in the pastoral skills and academic training to enable priests to be ready to carry out their mission in the Church. As we begin a new millennium, the challenge that is before us in seminaries is to provide a priest who is able to meet the great challenges we face in societies like Australia.
The Seminary of the Good Shepherd seeks to produce men who are strong in faith, deep in their love of God, of people, men who are truly men of the Church, men of God, and who have a heart of a servant. Shepherds after the heart of God.
The Redemptoris Mater Seminary of Sydney is preparing presbyters for the New Evangelization under the sponsorship of the Neocatechumenal Way which is an itinerary of post baptismal formation that serves to help people grow in faith as they discover the fruits of their baptism. The seminarians of Redemptoris Mater Sydney receive their academic formation at the Catholic Institute of Sydney and the University of Notre Dame. During their seminary formation they are involved in many moments of evangelization and missionary experiences throughout Australia and beyond to help in their preparation to become presbyters of the New Evangelization available to be sent by the Archbishop of Sydney to meet the needs of the Universal Church.
