“We Are Mundelein” Month

Throughout February, we want to honor your commitment to our mission during “We Are Mundelein” month.

You are part of the “We” that makes Mundelein the heart of the dioceses we serve. In a very real way, you are united with us in our mission to form holy, joyful parish priests. The education and formation of our seminarians would not be possible without your prayers and support.

We invite you to submit photos and posts showing your support for Mundelein Seminary, our seminarians and our alumni priests serving in your parishes.

We look forward to sharing your stories—which are a part of our story, too. We are Mundelein and you are an essential part of that “we.”

Thank you!

Support the next generation of holy, joyful parish priests!

With your help, we want to raise $25,000 this month to continue our mission in support of the 200 seminarians discerning their vocation to the priesthood at Mundelein. This is a big goal, but every little bit counts. The funds raised online will be added to what we raise at the Celebration of Mundelein on February 28, our biggest fundraising event of the year. Thank you for your generosity and commitment to your future parish priests!
