drugs times; font-size: 18px;”>Several Cardinals, many Bishops and hundreds of Catholic priests have been educated at St. John’s Seminary since it opened its doors in 1939. Located on land donated by Don Juan Camarillo on a hill above Camarillo, St. John’s Seminary is normally closed to the public. But on one day every April, St. John’s Seminary throws open its front gates for a free, public Open House with tours conducted by seminarians and free refreshments in the seminary’s beautiful Refectory. Last year over 700 people attended the Open House, according to seminary officials.
This year’s Open House will be held Saturday, April 26, from 1-4 PM at St. John’s Seminary, located at 5012 Seminary Road, Camarillo, CA 93012, just east of the intersection of Lewis and Upland Roads. This year also marks the beginning of the Seminary’s 75th Anniversary celebration, to be held now through October of 2015.
Parish groups are encouraged to attend by car pool, bus or train to Camarillo train station as parking at St. John’s is limited.
There is no charge to attend but your St. John’s Seminary hosts encourage you to let them know you’re coming and how many are in your group by registering at www.stjohnsopenhouse2014.eventbrite.com or calling (805) 389-2035. For more information please email [email protected]
