WELCOME TO THE PONTIFICAL SCOTS COLLEGE, ROME
Welcome to the website of the Pontifical Scots College. The website presents the purpose of our college as a seminary preparing men for the priesthood and for service in the Church’s mission in Scotland. It also gives an insight into the preparation of these men through human, spiritual, intellectual and pastoral formation – the four strands of formation which combine to help men grow into the servant priests they are called to be in the image of Christ, the Good Shepherd, the one came ‘not to be served but to serve and give his life as a ransom for many’ (Mk 10:45). Through the picture gallery you will be able to follow us through the ordinary and extraordinary events which make up the life of the College. Finally, you will find links to different websites which offer their own presentations of life in the diocese of Scotland as well as the office of Priests for Scotland, the national vocations office.
As a visitor, we ask you to think about us and pray for us, formators and seminarians as we carry out the work that the Church asks of us – to celebrate our vocation in Christ and to discern and help others discern their own vocation leading them to the place in which Christ is calling them to serve him best in his Church. May Mary, Mother of the Church and Mother of Priests pray for us.
