Welcome to Holy Spirit Seminary


Founded in 1939, the Queensland Provincial Seminary is located at Banyo in the Northern suburbs of Brisbane.  For over seventy years young men have trained at Banyo in preparation for a life of mission and Priestly ministry in the Catholic Church in Queensland and beyond.

In 2003 the original Seminary buildings opened their doors to welcome the Australian Catholic University.   A new, vibrant and innovative Seminary campus was constructed in 2007 and extended in 2010.

At the heart of the new Seminary buildings is the Oratory.  Each day the Seminary community gathers for Mass and prayer in the Oratory.  Each Thursday, priests and seminarians come together in the Oratory for Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament.  The prayer intention of the community is for vocations to the Priesthood and Religious life.  It is in the Oratory that priestly hearts are formed by the Holy Spirit.
