Saint Paul Seminary is the diocesan minor seminary for the Roman Catholic Diocese Of Pittsburgh located in East Carnegie, a city neighborhood of tucked in the southwest part of Pittsburgh.
It is named in honor of St. Paul (5CE - 67CE), one of Christ's Apostles who is credited with writing much of the Bible's New Testament.
The seminary is not a degree-granting institution; seminarians in their collegiate or pre-theological studies attend classes at Duquesne University.
Saint Paul's Seminary occupies the grounds and buildings of the former Saint Paul's Orphanage. The 17-acre campus began its connection with the Pittsburgh diocese with the establishment of the orphanage there on May 27, 1900, on "a plateau at Idlewood between Crafton and Carnegie." The orphanage operated until August 1965, when its operations were combined with those of Holy Family Institute in Emsworth.
In September 1965, Bishop John Wright founded St. Paul Seminary as a minor, or "transitional," seminary on the same site.
