“We are Mundelein” Month

Posted on January 22, 2019

Throughout February, we are honoring 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 show your support for Mundelein Seminary, our seminarians and our alumni priests serving in your parishes by submitting photos, praying a Holy Hour for vocations and making a gift to our #WeAreMundelein fund to support the formation of your future parish priests. We are so grateful for your participation and look forward to sharing your photos!

We are Mundelein and you are an essential part of that “we.”

Thank you!


#WeAreMundelein Photos

We invite you to submit photos, videos and stories showing your support for Mundelein Seminary, our seminarians and our alumni priests serving in your parishes. Get creative! Take a photo with your priest or a seminarian at your parish, snap a selfie with a “We Are Mundelein” sign or send an encouraging video message to our seminarian community. You can send to socialmedia@usml.edu and share on social media with the #WeAreMundelein hashtag.
