International Seminary of Saint Pius X - Ecône   


We are happy to welcome you to the Seminary of Ecône.

You are about to discover this house of formation where about 100 young men live animated with the desire of knowing and serving this God who is so good that He made Himself incarnate.

You will discover their life of prayer and study according to an order that does not exclude relaxation.

At the end of five years here at Ecône these young men will be priests for eternity. They will become the dispensers of divine life, of the grace of Jesus Christ who alone is the Way, the Truth and the Life.

In 1962 Pope John XXIII opened the Second Vatican Council: a new Pentecost for new prophets so that the body of the Church might be made to fit the soul of the world.

And so for 40 years we have asked the question "Church, what do you see coming ?" The Conciliar Church holds to its tired, listless and weary reply: "I see nothing coming but the sun shining and the grass growing greener."

But as for us, the long sight of the Faith allow us to immerse ourselves in the mystery of the Holy Trinity and to make us grow in the understanding of Christ Our Lord: "The Alpha and the Omega, the beginning and the end, to whom belongs the time and the centuries, the glory and the power for ever and ever. Amen." (Liturgy of the Easter Vigil)
