Joyful Catholic Leaders Show: How is a seminary run?

On the inaugural episode of the Joyful Catholic Leaders Show, Saint Paul Seminary Rector Fr. Joseph Taphorn explains what goes on behind the scenes at the seminary. How are young men discerning the priesthood being prepared for the world they’ll enter upon ordination?

Fr. Taphorn also shares stories from his “jail days” — he was once arrested multiple times while protesting at abortion clinics — and how spending his spare time training for marathons or sailing at one of Minnesota’s 10,000 Lakes helps him maintain balance as a joyful, Catholic leader.

Produced by The Seminaries of Saint Paul, the Joyful Catholic Leaders Show shares stories and insights from those who lead with faith — from the seminary, to the parish, to the classroom, to the office, to the sports field and everywhere in between.
