Come and See
Bishop Simon Bruté College Seminary
The seminary program is named in honor of Bishop Simon Bruté, the first bishop of the Diocese of Vincennes, and was established by the Archdiocese of Indianapolis in 2004 to prepare college seminarians for major seminary.
All seminarians live together and participate as a community in an ongoing formation program centered upon daily celebration of the Eucharist and praying the Liturgy of the Hours.
Bishop Bruté seminarians are enrolled as students at Marian University, located one mile south of the seminary. Most seminarians take part in intramural sports or various other clubs and organizations on campus. Students attend class with other Marian University students and eat their meals in the campus dining hall.
Bishop Bruté students study philosophy and theology with a distinguished faculty who are actively involved in the lives of the students they teach.
