The seminary building  was built in 1863, then rebuilt in 1963. It reopened in 1986 to train seminarians from six southern dioceses.

Since 2006, it has recruited only students from Hồ Chí Minh City Archdiocese and two Dioceses of Mỹ Tho and Phú Cường. The seminary got government permission for annual recruitment in 2007. On March 19, 2012, the first stone laying ceremony of the seminary’s new block was celebrated.
