Pontifical North American College

The Archbishop of Milwaukee chooses a very small number of major seminarians to undertake their theological studies at the Pontifical North American College, a house of formation for American seminarians in Rome. These seminarians receive their human, pastoral and spiritual formation from the priest-faculty of the PNAC and they receive their intellectual formation at one of Rome's pontifical universities.  Each summer, they return to Milwaukee to live and work in a parish in the archdiocese.

More information about the Pontifical North American College is available at http://www.pnac.org/.


The Vocation Office hosts a variety of events from retreats to discernment groups. 

JPII House

The JPII House is a residence for adult men to encounter Jesus Christ through a formative living experience.
