Program Description

The UST School of Theology (USTST) at St. Mary's Seminary is committed to providing the solid academic formation necessary for excellence in ministry. Part of this commitment is realized in diaconal formation for the state of Texas.

The USTST diaconal program is in full conformity with the National Directory for the Formation, Ministry and Life of Permanent Deacons of the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops. At present we are responsible for the academic formation of candidates for the permanent diaconate in the following dioceses:

  • Austin       
  • Beaumont                          
  • Brownsville
  • Corpus Christi
  • Galveston-Houston
  • Laredo
  • Victoria

With the advent of teleconferencing capabilities, we will soon be able to expand our abilities to serve even more dioceses in Texas and the Southwest.
