The Rome Experience is celebrating its 10th Anniversary (2009-2019)!

The Rome Experience is a six week summer program for diocesan seminarians designed to complement existing programs of formation in diocesan seminaries. Seminarians interested in applying must be recommended by their bishops and vocation directors and they must have completed their first year of theology. Applications are now being accepted:

Tuesday, May 21 – Monday, July 1, 2019

Applications for the 2019 program and scholarship must be received or postmarked by: Monday, January 7, 2019

Midwest Theological Forum has established a scholarship fund to assist those seminarians who are in need of financial assistance. Limited partial scholarships are available based on merit and need. See the program application for more information.

Because space is limited, incomplete or late applications for the program and the scholarship will not be considered.

Applications may be submitted by mail, fax, or email.
