Seminary Basketball Tournament

The Kenrick-Glennon Seminary Lions will soon compete in the annual Fr. Pat O’Malley Invitational Basketball Tournament at Mundelein Seminary near Chicago. Several college and theological seminaries play in the tournament. Last year, the Lions were defeated by Sacred Heart Major Seminary (Detroit) in the finals. The tournament is an enjoyable opportunity for athletic competition and fraternity among the seminarians.

Important Announcement

Memorandum from Archbishop Robert J. Carlson – January 20, 2015

I am pleased to announce that I have appointed Reverend James Mason, JD as the next Rector and President of Kenrick-Glennon Seminary effective July 1, 2015. Father Mason, originally a priest from the Diocese of Sioux Falls, SD, currently serves as the Dean of Students and Director of Spiritual Formation at the seminary.

Father Mason will replace Reverend John Horn, SJ, who has served in this role since July 2011. I am grateful to Father Horn for his outstanding work during his tenure as President-Rector. To name just a few of his accomplishments throughout these four years, the seminary has experienced 11% growth in its enrollment, developed outstanding academic faculty, built strong ties with key collaborators, such as the Institute of Priestly Formation and the Gregorian University in Rome, and will complete its multi-million dollar renovation with the blessing of a restored chapel in the Spring of this year.

Father Mason joined the staff of Kenrick-Glennon Seminary in August 2014. It is a blessing that Father Horn and Father Mason will have a full academic year to work together to guarantee continuity in the formation of our young men. Father Mason is well known and well respected among the faculty and students.
