St. Peter's has a strong history of supporting seminarians.  It has had a Seminarian Internship program since it's founding.  In addition, many St. Peter's parishioners seeking a vocation in God's church have gone off to seminary.

St. Peter's shield - small Summer Seminary Fellows

For several years during the summer, St. Peter's has hosted a divinity student from Duke Divinity School to give him or her practical experience in the operation of a large parish. Now, St. Peter’s serves not only as a teaching parish for students from Duke University Divinity School, but also Trinity School for Ministry and Nashotah House Theological Seminary. The student is placed with us in the summer for ten weeks and participates in the life and ministry of St. Peter’s. Working under the supervision of St. Peter’s clergy and Carol Long, our Fellows are able to experience parish ministry in its fullness so as to be better able to discern his or her calling.

In addition, catch up on our former seminarians.
