The UST School of Theology at St. Mary's Seminary is committed to providing the solid academic formation necessary for excellence in ministry. Part of this commitment is lived out 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 for candidates for the permanent diaconate in the dioceses of Galveston-Houston, Austin, Beaumont, CorpusChristi and Victoria. With the advent of teleconferencing capabilities we will soon be able to expand our abilities to serve still other dioceses in Texas and the Southwest.
