Kenrick-Glennon Seminary hosted the 2015 Advent Novena during the evenings from December 1st through December 9th. All friends of the seminary were invited to join our seminarians for nine evenings of prayer and worship in preparation for Christmas. Each night of the Novena began at 7:00 p.m. and included prayer, Scripture, a reflective homily, and hymns led by the seminarian choir. The Novena was held in the seminary’s recently renovated Chapel of St. Joseph.
