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.
