General Information About St. Mary's Seminary & University
Greetings from St. Mary’s new president-rector! May the grace and peace of the Lord Jesus be with you. It is an honor for me to serve as the rector of the oldest Catholic seminary in the United States and my own alma mater. This is my third assignment to St. Mary’s Seminary & University and I am full of joy and excitement to be back. I came here first in August of 1968 as a first theologian, taught on the faculty from 1980-1992, and served as vice rector from 1986-1992. I am delighted to be back at St. Mary’s for a third time. I am grateful to Father Robert Leavitt, S.S., who served as rector from 1980-2007, for his advice and counsel during my months of transition. He now begins a well-deserved sabbatical. I hope you will find that this website gives you an overview of the wonderful seminarian community and vibrant programs at St. Mary’s Seminary & University today.
