Notre Dame Seminary is a resident, accredited graduate theological school in New Orleans, Louisiana, founded in 1923 for the education of men to be priests of the Roman Catholic Church. The building, located at 2901 South Carrollton Avenue, was constructed between 1922-1923, and was designed by architect General Allison Owen.

It offers the graduate degrees of M.Div. and M.A. in theological studies. It operates under the auspices of the Archdiocese of New Orleans. It serves the other six Catholic dioceses of the Province of New Orleans, six additional dioceses in the southern United States and Africa, and four Catholic religious institutes. The current reported enrollment is 79 seminarians, as well as 17 non-seminarians.

Beginning in February 2013, it will play host to a large, diverse, and innovative exhibit, that has pieces from other institutions (such as the Vatican Collections and the Pope John Paul II Center in Krakow, Poland), about Pope John Paul II, called, "I Have Come To See You Again.", which will begin its U.S. tour there.[1]
