SS. Cyril & Methodius Seminary (SSCMS) is a Roman Catholic seminary under
the patronage of these two great missionaries to the Slavic peoples. The
Seminary offers a formation program that prepares men, primarily from
Poland, for the ordained priesthood. The Seminary also offers theological
degree programs for lay people. Deeply rooted in its American and Polish
heritage, the Seminary shares in the mission of Our Lord Jesus Christ and the Church to form evangelizers in the Third Millennium.

Welcome to the web site of SS. Cyril and Methodius Seminary in Orchard Lake, MI.
SS. Cyril and Methodius Seminary, founded by Father Dabrowski in 1885, the first seminary in the State of Michigan and the only seminary in the United States dedicated to preparing foreign-born seminarians, primarily from Poland, to serve the Catholic Church in our country.
We are inspired by the missionary zeal of our patrons, St. Cyril and St. Methodius, who brought Christianity to the Slavic peoples. As we have celebrated over 125 years as a seminary (and 100 years at Orchard Lake), we recommit ourselves to our mission of forming missionaries as evangelizers in the 21st century. Read more...
