The Summer Scripture Seminar is the premier continuing education program of the University of Saint Mary of the Lake by the Institute for Ongoing Formation. Since the early 1970’s, this seminar has enjoyed a loyal commitment on the part of participants. Ninety percent of our students return each year.
The Summer Scripture Seminar has become a community of women and men committed to ministry and learning in the Church. Since the Bible is the soul of theology, USML chose to stress ongoing study of the scriptures as the emphasis of the seminar.
We welcome you to our web site. In its pages you will find information about this exciting program. You will meet an exceptional faculty, learn what participants say about the seminar, and view next year’s program.
The seminar is a cooperative venture by the Institute For Ongoing Formation and the Department of Biblical Exegesis and Proclamation of Mundelein Seminary at the University of St. Mary of the Lake.
The outstanding faculty of the program is drawn from the top biblical scholars and theologians in the United States.

Summer Scripture Seminar is the perfect combination of erudition, stimulation, relaxation, pastoral sharing, spiritual renewal, and even physical exercise. My time at Mundelein is like an Emmaus trek with Jesus, and my heart burns with joy and insight the rest of the year. Your hospitality invites, your grounds and buildings enchant, your vision inspires. I thank you each year…
