St. Athanasius Seminary is a two-year residential seminary program that prepares young men for a life of service in the Coptic Orthodox Church. The seminary is located on the grounds of St. Mary and St. Moses Abbey in Texas, USA, overseeing the beautiful Corpus Christi lake.

Lectures and dialogue with top Coptic Orthodox clergy/teachers will be conducted at the Abbey, and students will participate in the abbey’s liturgical life and have access to the extensive library and other facilities.

This boarding seminary is designed by His Grace Bishop Youssef and is endorsed by his Holiness Pope Tawadros to create a cadre of young Coptic men rooted in the fundamentals of the Coptic faith.
