Athenaeum of Ohio Employment Opportunities
The Athenaeum of Ohio forms men and women to follow Christ faithfully and serve His mission by fulfilling their vocations in the Church. Through its three divisions (Mt. St. Mary’s Seminary of the West, the Lay Pastoral Ministry Program and Special Studies Division) it prepares men for the Roman Catholic priesthood and men and women for various roles in the Church. The student body presents a wide spectrum in terms of age, educational background and vocational goals. These range from priesthood to lay ecclesial ministry and from teaching to personal enrichment. Academic performance and professional achievement are required, but equal weight is placed on pastoral, human and spiritual formation. There is a substantial formation program for priesthood candidates and integrated formational activities for other students.
