Please Support Our Future Priests

Advent NovenaDuring Advent, we acknowledge the gifts we have received and anticipate the joy of Christmas. God has blessed us with many seminarians at Kenrick-Glennon. These young men radiate Christ’s joy in our parishes, schools and apostolates as they prepare for a lifetime of loving service.

Each Christmas, we remember our seminarians with a special collection in parishes throughout the Archdiocese of St. Louis. Your contribution helps cover the annual expenses of the education and formation of our future priests. If you are celebrating outside of the Archdiocese, please consider making a gift in one of these other ways:

  • Make an online gift
  • Send your contribution to Kenrick-Glennon Seminary, Mailstop 300400, P.O. Box 798307, St. Louis, MO 63179
  • Donate appreciated securities

Thank you for supporting our future priests!
