“This has been one of the most transformative formation experience of my time as a seminarian. And it helped me fall even more in love with our Church. I am returning to my seminary with a new perspective – a Roman perspective, one coming from the heart of the Church.”

Stephen Kenyon
Archdiocese of Portland in Oregon
Rome Experience Class of 2015

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