2019 Rector’s Classic Golf Outing and Awards Dinner

Thursday, September 19, 2019

Please join us at this year’s 28th Annual Rector’s Classic Golf Outing and Awards Dinner to be held on Thursday, September 19, 2019 at Pine Meadow Golf Course. This event is Mundelein Seminary’s second largest fundraiser supporting the education and formation of seminarians training for the priesthood.

We are proud to honor Father James Presta (Mundelein Class of 1986) with the 2019 Joseph Cardinal Bernardin “In Service of One Another” Catholic Humanitarian Award at this year’s event. Father Presta is the pastor of St. Emily in Mount Prospect, and has been a leader in seminary administration, including six years of service as our Vice Rector.

The tournament will be played at the historic Pine Meadow Golf Course at Mundelein Seminary with the awards dinner following on the Seminary’s majestic campus. Continually rated as one of the top 50 public ranges to play by the Golf Range Association of America and recently voted as “One of the Best Courses You Can Play” by Golfweek, Pine Meadow offers scenic fairways and magnificent greens.  Register early – foursomes are limited to the first 32 registered.
