  Today we present the third of 5 weekly videos in our series, Profiles in Ministry. In this 2-minute video glimpse, you will meet CJ Wild, a pre-theology seminarian from the Diocese of Buffalo.

CJ brings over eight years as a volunteer firefighter and he sees a lot of parallels between fire service and priesthood: “As a firefighter it’s my privilege to be able to enter into people’s suffering with them. So when we get a call, whether it be at dinnertime, in the middle of the night, middle of the day, we go–because people need us….We unconditionally serve. We enter into that suffering with people and we serve … We try to be that salvation that they need in that moment.”

The Seminary

The Seminary, founded in Baltimore in 1791, by the Society of Saint Sulpice, strives, as its primary purpose, to provide outstanding spiritual, human, intellectual and pastoral preparation for candidates for the Roman Catholic Priesthood. Following in the Sulpician Seminary tradition, it seeks to do this as a formational community grounded in Jesus Christ and primarily directed toward diocesan priestly service in the Church.

The Ecumenical

The Ecumenical Institute encourages people of all denominations to explore theological studies in a serious, open-minded, and supportive environment.

The Center for
Continuing Formation

Opened in 1996, the Center offers an array of programs for priests and bishops. There are conferences for the newly ordained, new pastors, priests engaged in pastoral and special ministries, and senior priests. The Center has also developed a series of conferences which addresses needs of bishops and their co-workers in the task of diocesan administration. Additionally the Center hosts groups for academic, pastoral and ecumenical conferences.
