Holy Land Retreat and Pilgrimage

The deacons in Theology IV have returned from the second annual Holy Land Retreat and Pilgrimage. Their journey included a five-day canonical retreat (required for Ordination to the Priesthood) on the Mount of Beatitudes on the Sea of Galilee and time for pilgrimage in the Holy Land.

Further information about their journey is available on our 2014 Holy Land Pilgrimage website. Thank you to the generous sponsors who helped make this Holy Land Retreat and Pilgrimage possible! 

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
