It is with profound gratitude to our Lord for His manifold blessings that we welcome you to St Athanasius Major Seminary website. An Orthodox Catholic Seminary of the Syriac-Greek Antiochian Holy Metropolis of St Peter in the United States of America under the patronage of St Athanasius. St Athanasius Seminary is an open Seminary, an academic unit of The Eastern Orthodox Catholic Theological Institute that offers traditional and distance undergraduate and postgraduate certificates and degree programs across several disciplines certified to train candidates for ordination and other ministries within the Orthodox Catholic Church. The objectives of the Institute are to prepare men and women for leadership in the Orthodox Church, and moreover, to advance apostolic diakonia and outreach in Latin America, India and Africa by creating an environment that fosters growth in knowledge, faith, spiritual life and experience, orthopraxis, and service. The Institute’s work complements the apostolic ministry and response of the Syriac-Greek Antiochian Holy Metropolis of St Peter in the United States of America to our Lord’s command to “go and make disciples of all nations” (Matthew 28:19).
