What are the advantages of Holy Cross Seminary?

All of the Society's seminaries are international, and consequently not limited to one country, but are an image of the universality of the Catholic Church. Holy Cross Seminary is no exception to this, receiving candidates from a variety of countries. However, the Seminary is modeled on the Society's mother seminary in Ecône, Switzerland, in all its details, as well as in the principles of formation. Its purpose is to pass on to the seminarians the spirit given to the Society by its holy founder, Archbishop Marcel Lefebvre. Holy Cross Seminary also has the advantage of having only a small enrollment of students, and of being in the country and in an out of the way place, making it very favourable for prayer and study.
