Rector’s Mass and Brunch

October 13 @ 9:30 am - 12:00 pm

Celebrate Mass, followed by a light brunch with Very Reverend John Kartje, Rector of Mundelein Seminary

Celebrate tradition, faith, and community at the annual Rector’s Mass and Brunch, hosted by the University of Saint Mary of the Lake, Mundelein Seminary. Join us as we gather in reverence and gratitude for another year of growth, learning, and spiritual journey.

The Rector’s Mass is a sacred occasion, where faculty, seminarians, alumni, and friends come together in unity, guided by the light of faith. With hearts open and spirits lifted, we offer prayers of thanksgiving and seek blessings for the journey ahead. It’s a moment to reflect on our shared mission and renew our commitment to serving others with compassion and grace.

Following the Mass, indulge in the warmth of fellowship and the joy of community at our sumptuous brunch. Share stories, laughter, and camaraderie as we break bread together, nourishing not only our bodies but also our souls. It’s a time to forge deeper connections, to strengthen bonds, and to cherish the cherished memories that make our community so vibrant and alive.

Whether you’re a member of the seminary, an alum returning to familiar grounds, or a friend eager to experience the spirit of Saint Mary of the Lake, all are welcome to join us for this cherished tradition. Come, be part of something truly special—a celebration of faith, friendship, and the enduring spirit of Saint Mary of the Lake.
