The Sulpicians are in charge of three seminaries in the United States, one in Zambia, and one in Malawi :

  • St. Mary’s Seminary and University in Baltimore, Maryland

In the beginning of the nineteenth century, the seminary became the first ecclesiastical faculty of the country with the right to grant degrees in the name of the Holy See.

  • Emmaus Spirituality Centre of Lusaka, Zambia

Sulpicians priests serve in Zambia since the Zambian bishops call them to train young Zambian seminarians.
As a result, the Emmaus Spirituality Centre, a propaedeutic year of seminary formation, was established in 1989 in Zambia’s capital city, Lusaka. In the years that followed several Zambian priests, with the permission of their respective bishops, were invited to join the Sulpicians in their apostolate as Sulpicians of the U.S. Province serving in Zambia.
