Our Seminarian

Our parishioner John Hawks is a Seminarian at Kenrick-Glennon Seminary.  We are blessed and honored to have a Seminarian from our parish. 


Please keep John, and all the men and women who are considering a vocation to religious life, in your prayers!   If you wish to donate to assist John with his many expenses while attending the seminary, there is a container available in the church vestibule, or contact the Parish Office.



TAKE ME OUT TO THE BALL GAME—Five diocesan Kenrick-Glennon seminarians in St. Louis joined Bishop Edward Rice at the Sept. 25, 2017, National League Baseball header between the Chicago Cubs and the St. Louis Cardinals. Pictured were Josh Carroll, Rylee Hartwell, Bishop Rice, Daniel Belken, die-hard Cubs fan and native of Chicago Msgr. Tom Reidy, Vicar General and Chancellor of the Diocese, and pastor of St. Elizabeth Ann Seton Parish, Springfield, and St. Francis of Assisi Parish, Nixa; Fr. Tom Kiefer, Vice Chancellor and pastor of Immaculate Conception Parish, Springfield; Allen Kirchner, and John Hawks. Clearly the number of Cardinal fans in this group wasn’t a factor in a Red Bird win, as the Cubs won the match-up with a final score of 10-2. (The Mirror)
