Your Servants

Led by His Eminence, Archbishop DAVID, the Seminary’s personnel are a team of servants... indeed, His Eminence signs his letters, “Your Servant of Servants.” Each member of the team has one goal: help you proclaim the Gospel message within the particular context of Alaska and, therefore, within the particular context of North America.

Each member of the team serves you differently: teaching, building and repairing, maintaining safety and beauty, cooking, listening, praying... the list is long. Serving you is as varied as the difference between the Waiter at your favorite restaurant and your Dentist. So too with your team of servants; at times you will welcome our service and at other times you may not, but at all times we will be doing our very best to treat you as Jesus has treated us.
