Alumni Bishops-Elect Celebrate Appointments with Holy Mass in the Seminary’s Chapel

It was with great joy that the seminary community welcomed two alumni priests, both newly appointed bishops, to the seminary for the celebration of Holy Mass. Recently, the Holy Father appointed Bishop-Elect Lawrence Nicasio, Class of 1989 as bishop of the Diocese of Belize City-Belmopan and Bishop-Elect Mark Rivituso, Class of 1988, as Auxiliary Bishop for the Archdiocese of St. Louis. Bishop-Elect Rivituso celebrated Holy Mass in the Chapel of St. Joseph, with the seminarians of Kenrick School of Theology in attendance. Please join us in praying for the newly elected bishops as they prepare for the ordinations to their episcopacies later this spring.

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.

Midshipman Answers the Call

“With an appointment to the United States Naval Academy, Andrew Hunt seemed to have his plans set for at least the next nine years, maybe more.

He’d spend four years at the academy in Annapolis, Md., then five more as a commissioned officer in the Navy. After that, he’d either become career military, just as his father, John, was for 34 years in the Air Force, or parlay his Naval experience into a rewarding career. Either way, it seemed that he would fulfill the dreams nurtured by tagging along as a young child with his dad to Scott Air Force Base in Mascoutah, Ill.

Except for one thing. Hunt felt a higher calling…”
