Where Do I Begin?

Mundelein Seminary

Mundelein Seminary prepares candidates for the diocesan priesthood and provides full-time intellectual, spiritual, human and pastoral formation. The seminary’s program provides seminarians with a deeper understanding of the Catholic faith, growth in prayer, celibate chastity and readiness for diocesan priestly life and ministry of priestly leadership.

Seminary life offers opportunities for continued discernment, particularly in the first years. It is normal for knowledge of ‘the ways of the Lord’ to increase as preparation for priesthood is undertaken.
