Papal Seminary (PS), Pune, India, is a Catholic educational institute, primarily meant for the training of future priests of India. At the moment it caters to the formation of about 180 Seminarians from all over India.
"Filii tui India, administri tibi salutis" (Your own sons, O India, will be the heralds of your salvation). These are the words with which Pope Leo XIII, a great visionary and a missionary, established the Papal Seminary.

Papal Seminary has a long and colourful history beginning in Kandy, Sri Lanka. Pope Leo XIII had entrusted the task of founding Papal Seminary to Ladislaus Michael Zaleski, then Apostolic Delegate to India.
It was shifted in 1955 to Pune, after India gaining independence. St. (Pope) John Paul II visited Papal Seminary on Feb 10, 1986. 1993 was the centenary of Papal Seminary, which was celebrated in a grand manner. During this time Mother Teresa visited us.
In 2018 we celebrated 125 years of Papal Seminary's service to India and the Church.
