Upcoming Ordinations

This year, 18 men are expected to graduate from Kenrick-Glennon Seminary and be ordained to the Sacred Priesthood. 21 seminarians will be ordained to the Transitional Diaconate. Please pray for them as they prepare to devote their lives to the service of Christ and His Church. For information about the upcoming ordinations, please visit

The seminary community is grateful to its friends who have generously supported these young men as they discerned God’s call. Thank you for helping them become effective, faithful and humble leaders, ready to engage the world and preach the Gospel of Jesus Christ.

Prayer Partners

As Pope Francis recently stated, “Behind and before every vocation to the priesthood or the consecrated life, there is always the strong and intense prayer of someone: a grandmother, a grandfather, a mother, a father, a community."

It is in this spirit that all are invited to partner with the Kenrick-Glennon Seminary community in prayer. Beginning on the first Sunday of Advent, the seminary will hold up a special intention each week and invite others to take the intention into their personal prayer time. The list of intentions will be updated online each month at
