Institutional Advancement

Greetings from Mundelein Seminary!

Jesus Christ calls all to discipleship and thus a life of stewardship in mission. All gifts and talents come from a loving Father and in faith are returned to Him by stewards of His glory.

The two goals for the Office of Institutional Advancement at the University of St. Mary of the Lake / Mundelein Seminary are: to invite all to experience the hospitality, beauty, solitude and prayerfulness of the campus either in person or through events, letters or media which tell the story. And to encourage individuals, corporations and foundations to support the mission of the University of St. Mary of the Lake / Mundelein Seminary in prayer, financial contributions and estate commitments.

I would hope that as you come to understand the importance of our mission, you would come to understand your role in that mission.

As I meet and greet so many of our benefactors, I relate to them that the most important thing that they can do for our seminarians is to pray for them. The power of prayer moves us forward in faith!

Thanks for all you do for the University of St. Mary of the Lake / Mundelein Seminary.

Sincerely yours in Christ,


Mark J. Teresi, CFRE
