Mission Statement

Franciscans have provided theological training in California since 1854. From its earliest history, FST has responded to the changing cultural, social, and religious realities of California and the West. Once one of a number of Franciscan seminaries in the United States, FST is now the only Franciscan seminary/theology school in the country. Through its longstanding mission and a new affiliation with the University of San Diego, a private Catholic institution of higher learning, FST continues to bring the questions of contemporary culture, society, and Church into dialog with the ever-ancient and ever-new Word of the Gospel.
Our Mission
The Franciscan School of Theology is committed to embodying Franciscan theology in a religiously and culturally diverse world. We offer an intercultural Christian community in which to prepare men and women for professional ministry, for careers in theological education, and for living a life dedicated to solidarity with those on the margins of society and the Church in the knowledge of Christian faith.
