Mass and Holy Hour for Vocations with Mundelein Seminary

Join us for a Holy Hour on February 8th at 7:00pm to pray for an increase in vocations to the priesthood and celebrate Mundelein Seminary’s centennial. Seminary staff will be bringing a beautiful historic monstrance that was used at the 1926 International Eucharistic Congress held on the seminary grounds. This will be a great opportunity to come together in prayer and learn more about the vital mission of Mundelein Seminary in forming your future parish priests.

The monstrance was a gift to Cardinal Mundelein from Pope Pius XI for the 1926 International Eucharistic Congress in Chicago—the first Congress to be held in the United States. The monstrance was used in a Eucharistic Procession during the closing ceremony of the congress, which was held at Mundelein Seminary and attended by nearly 800,000 people.

Inquiry Night

If you are a person who has never been baptized, or was baptized in another religion, and have a desire to become Catholic or if you are a baptized Catholic adult who has not made your First Holy Communion or Confirmation, you are invited to an Inquiry Night.

We will hold a Virtual Inquiry Night  for anyone interested in learning more about the process, on Thursday, January 27, 2022 @ 7pm.

Please email Dr. Doug Muir – dmuir@smip.org to receive the Zoom Meeting ID 

Just come, listen and ask any questions you may have about the faith and the process necessary to be fully initiated into the faith.
