“We Are Mundelein” Month 2019

Throughout February, we honored 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 invited 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 the hundreds of supporters who participated in various ways throughout the month.

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

Thank you!


#WeAreMundelein Photos

We received so many positive messages and photos of our supporters with their parish priests, seminarians and fellow parishioners. Thank you for supporting the priests in your life!


100 Holy Hours for Vocations

We asked you to help us pray 100 Holy Hours in the month of February for our seminarians and an increase in vocations to the priesthood. Thanks to you, more than 120 Holy Hours were prayed! If you would like to participate, download a printable vocations prayer card or print this poster of our seminarian community to hang in your home as a reminder to pray for vocations. We are so grateful to the supporters listed below who committed to a Holy Hour!
