Advent Novena from December 2 – 10

You are invited to join the Kenrick-Glennon Seminary community as we prepare for the joy and splendor of Christmas. Each evening of the Novena begins at 7:00 p.m. and includes prayer, Scripture, a reflective homily, and hymns. Due to renovations in the Chapel of St. Joseph, the Novena will be held in the seminary auditorium.

Visit the Novena page for further information, including the list of homilists.

“Intro to Seminary Life” Video

Every year, the seminarians at Kenrick Glennon Seminary get together for a time of fraternity, food, and fun for the “The Halloween Gaud.” For this gaud, each class puts together an entertaining video to show to their brothers. Here is an example of one video from our 2014 gaud, produced by the college men.

Chapel Renovations

Beautiful church buildings often inspire us to pray. To help enhance the prayer life of the seminarians, the Chapel of St. Joseph, the main place of worship at the seminary, is undergoing renovations. This is the final phase of the seminary renovations funded through the Faith for the Future Campaign.

For further information, visit the Chapel Renovations page.
