Seminary & Catholic Vocations

Our Seminary – Vianney College

Vianney College is the Seminary for the Diocese of Wagga Wagga. Founded in 1992 by Bishop William Brennan, it now operates in modern and comfortable buildings situated in pleasant rural surroundings on the outskirts of the city of Wagga Wagga. It has a well-trained and qualified academic staff and its courses are recognised by the Charles Sturt University in Wagga and by the Urbaniana University in Rome. St Ann’s library is on the campus and provides a modern and well stocked reference facitlity to the students.

Vianney College was established primarily for the training of priests for the Diocese of Wagga Wagga. However it has accepted requests from bishops of other dioceses and from religious superiors to train students destined for other areas and communities. Lay students are also accepted for a limited number of courses.

Catholic Vocations

Vocation within the context of Catholic Life means “call” –  responding to what God calls each of us to be, or to do, with our lives. Each person is called to discern their response to ‘God’s call’.  Will it be; Marriage? Priesthood? Religious Life? Consecrated Life?  Single Life?  We are all called by God to know, love and serve him in the daily routine of our lives. The difference is how each one responds to that ‘call’.
