My Long-term Vision for St. Lawrence Seminary is...

"That St. Lawrence will continue well into the future. It is my hope that students will make friendships that will last for a lifetime. It is my hope that through the discipline of study, athletics, extracurricular activities and in performing service projects students will strengthen their character. It is my hope that while they are here the students will discover the tremendous love that God has for them in creating each so uniquely and placing them here to discover the work He has in mind for them in their future."
