Welcome to Christ the King Seminary

Christ the King was a dynamic, vibrant, Christian community made up of diverse and talented individuals who, in their own way, contributed to the mission of the seminary and were committed to the Church of Jesus Christ. Striving to model Church as clergy, religious, and laity working collaboratively, we remain dedicated to bringing the Gospel of Jesus Christ to the world.

 The challenges of ministry are as great as ever before. Christ the King Seminary helped its students meet those challenges. With a committed faculty of experienced teacher-scholars and a support staff of dedicated individuals with diverse talents, Christ the King welcomed all people who wished to discern God's will in their life, in order to prepare themselves for exploring the questions and ministering to the needs of the contemporary world.

For over 150 years, Christ the King Seminary grew and faced the challenges of theological education and spiritual formation. The Seminary closed its doors in the spring of 2021.

Transcripts for Alumni and Former Students of Christ the King Seminary

The Department of Catholic Schools of the Diocese of Buffalo, N.Y. holds the transcripts for alumni and former students of Christ the King Seminary of East Aurora, New York. All requests for Christ the King Seminary transcripts must be made mailed or delivered to the Department. Generally, the Department will send an official (sealed) transcript to the agency or institution that has requested it of the alumnus/-a or former student. If a graduate or former student of Christ the King Seminary wants to receive his or her official transcript directly in order to submit it as part of a college or employment application, that transcript will be issued in a sealed envelope and stamped with an indication that it was "issued to student." Once that envelope is opened, the transcript will no longer be considered official.


There will be a $5.00 processing fee for requesting transcripts.
