The Most Meaningful Gift this Season
Help provide the best environment for young men to strengthen their knowledge and faith as they prepare to spend a lifetime in priestly ministry to serve the faithful...
God continues to bless us with faithful young men who answer the call to join the vocation of the priesthood.
We turn to priests during the most significant times of our lives. As celebrants at Mass, weddings, baptisms, anointing of the sick, funerals, and countless other moments of grace, our priests are there to guide us. The seminary is “a seedbed” where young men who use their courage and their intelligence live a life of service in Jesus Christ.
When you make a gift to the University of Saint Mary of theLake/Mundelein Seminary, you’re joining thousands of supporters who help provide the best environment for young men to strengthen their knowledge and faith as they prepare to spend a lifetime in priestly ministry to serve the faithful here, around the country and the world.

A Message from Fr. Barron Here
Feast of the Immaculate Conception
Celebrating belief in the Immaculate Conception of the Blessed Virgin Mary, The Feast of the Immaculate Conception is celebrated December 8th.
This celebration is special for anyone who spends it on campus at The University of Saint Mary of the Lake, whose chapel and statue represent the The Column of the Immaculate Conception, or la Colonna dell'Immacolata.
The Chapel at University of Saint Mary of the Lake was completed in 1925, and is set upon a knoll overlooking the lake. It was made in honor of Mary under the title of the Immaculate Conception. Above the entrance is the inscription Deo et Beatae Virgini Sacrum, indicating that the building is dedicated to God and the Blessed Virgin. The titles of Mary from the Litany of Loretto are inscribed in Latin along the ceiling inside the Chapel. (Main chapel is the Chapel of the Immaculate Conception, and she is the Patron Saint of our institution).
