The Roman Catholic Church prepares men for priestly ordination and lay women and men for ministry in a hierarchical institution that discriminates against women and LGBTQ.
PCS, a seminary without walls, educates women and men, ordained and non-ordained in new ways of thinking, attitudes, and values to meet the needs of inclusive ministries of equals today.

The future of adult education requires open minds and loving hearts committed to justice and equality both inside and outside the Church.

Testimonial from Denise Hacker-Stoner:
My studies with People's Catholic Seminary have allowed me to immerse myself in sacraments for the 21st century, contemporary theology, and the legacy of women mystics.  My sense of identity as a follower of the way of Jesus, and my recognition of the Christ presence in my fellow creatures have been greatly enhanced through my studies and my personal interactions with my friends at PCS. I have had the opportunity to compose sacramental celebrations and services, some of which have been used by my liturgical community.  Along my journey to ordination I have been accompanied by strong spiritual mentors, as well as highly valued peers.  All if us freely share ideas and build on one another’s' strengths.  All of this vast store of knowledge and experience has been available to me as a candidate for priesthood without cost.  I count myself blessed to be a student at People's Catholic Seminary.
