Ordinations 2017

This year, 15 men will be ordained to the Sacred Priesthood for 10 dioceses. Nine seminarians will also be ordained to the Transitional Diaconate for four dioceses.

We are grateful to the countless people who have supported these men through prayer and contributions to Kenrick-Glennon Seminary. Thank you for supporting them as they prepare to devote their lives to the service of Christ and His Church.

Visit our Ordinations page to learn more about the men and the ordinations in ten dioceses around the world.

Bishops-elect Rivituso and Nicasio Inspire Seminarians

“In a happy circumstance — Archbishop Robert J. Carlson dubs such a coincidence a ‘God-cidence’ — Bishop-elect Lawrence S. Nicasio of Belize just happened to be at Kenrick-Glennon Seminary at the perfect time on March 16, with Bishop-elect Mark S. Rivituso scheduled to celebrate the regular midday Mass.”

Kenrick-Glennon Days

Kenrick-Glennon Days is a summer camp held at the seminary for middle school boys.  Through talks and activities, and time with young priests and seminarians, campers can become more aware of God’s love and think about how God is calling them.

Young men entering sixth, seventh, eighth, and ninth grades in the fall (2017) are invited to the seminary for two action-packed days of swimming; capture the flag and KGD Water Olympics; educational sessions; Mass; Liturgy of the Hours; Confession; small group prayer; and more! Each participant is a member of a group of up to 10 young men, led by a junior counselor and a seminarian group leader.

Further information is available on the website of the Archdiocese of St. Louis’ Office of Vocations.
