Over the past century, Cardinal Mundelein’s “workshop of God” has formed thousands of priests to serve as holy bridges between Christ and His people. The true legacy of Mundelein Seminary is the ripple effect of their priestly ministry—the millions of souls they have encountered, accompanied and transformed by sharing the good news of the Gospel.

The history of Mundelein Seminary is deeply intertwined with the history of the Catholic Church in Chicago, as well as the other dioceses where our alumni priests serve across the country and around the world.
