Welcome to the website of SS. Cyril & Methodius Seminary in Orchard Lake, Michigan. The Seminary, founded by Father Józef Dąbrowski in 1885, is the first seminary in the State of Michigan and the only one 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. We celebrate the seminary’s 135-year history by recommitting ourselves to our founder’s mission of forming missionaries as evangelizers in the 21st century.
We are also committed to assist in the pastoral formation of permanent deacons and lay ministers. The Church in the United States. is blessed to experience the collaboration of priests and other ministers in the church.
We currently offer four degree programs: Master of Divinity, Master of Arts in Pastoral Ministry, Master of Arts in Pastoral Ministry with a Specialization in Catechetics, and a Master of Arts in Theology.
We are committed to faculty development as well as the development of programs and degrees that respond to the changing needs of the church. We are fortunate to be part of the Orchard Lake Schools campus that provides wonderful facilities in a beautiful environment for an enjoyable educational experience.
As you view our website, we invite you to consider how you would like to become part of our community. We entrust our work to the Divine Mercy and to Our Lady of Orchard Lake.
