Siolta is a annual seminary journal which gives a snapshot of life in St. Patrick’s College Maynooth. It is produced by the seminarian in an effort to share with family, friends and the wider University Community, life in the National Seminary and by extension the Pontifical University.
Rooted in the apostolic community gathered around Jesus Christ, the Seminary seeks to form future priests who will hand on the life and joy of the gospel and the tradition of the church’s faith in the mission of the new evangelization well into the future.

Lord Jesus, we ask your special blessing
on all seminarians preparing
for the priesthood in Maynooth.
We pray that they will grow in faith,
hope and charity.
May their hearts overflow with your compassion,
understanding and generosity.
May their desire to serve you inspire
others to answer your call.
Lord, give your seminarians the grace to follow you more perfectly.
When they are lonely or discouraged, fill them with your peace.
Jesus meek and humble of heart,
make the hearts of all seminarians like yours. Amen.
