Opening of the New Missions

Glenmary Father Don Tranel received a blessing from Glenmary President, Fr. Dan, and I rang the Mission Bell this morning in order to send Fr. Don out to the new missions. There is no Catholic church there yet but Fr. Don will be the first ever resident priest in Smith County, Tennessee.

Zoom and See retreats

Glenmary would love to host in person Come and See retreats like we did last year but for the time being our vocation events are online. 
Our Zoom and See retreats have a few sessions each day and cover the frequently asked questions about religious life. Some of the themes from the latest Zoom and See retreat included: what is life like in the missions, how are the promises of poverty, chastity, obedience and prayer lived out and how long do studies take to become a priest or a brother.

Contact us if you would like more information about upcoming  opportunities to meet with our vocation team. Send us an email

Zoom and See

“Jesus said to them, ‘Come, and you will see.’ So they went and saw where he was staying, and they stayed with him that day.” John 1:39
For the time being our in person Come and See retreats have been replaced with online, Zoom and See events.
During the online experience you will have the chance to:
• Meet Glenmary priests and brothers. 
• Learn about the mission needs in the USA. 
• Listen to how others are feeling called to religious life. 
• Pray with this small virtual community.

Easter Dinner at the Glen

Ohio’s “Stay at Home” order meant that for the first time ever those of us who live at The Glen, Glenmary's residence in Cincinnati, were not allowed to go out to the missions to help nor visit families over Easter weekend. First time ever that that has happened. 
This was our biggest Easter Dinner at the residence that anyone could remember.
