Ribbon Cutting Ceremony – 9/29/2017
In late September we hosted a ribbon cutting ceremony to show friends and benefactors of IHM Seminary the results of Kelly Hall’s Renovation. We were blessed to have Bishop Quinn present at the ceremony to do the ribbon cutting. We were also blessed to have leadership from St. Mary’s at the ceremony, including president Br. William. The event was a huge success, with many benefactors and members of St. Mary’s coming to see the new facilities. The ceremony was followed with hors d’oeuvre in the renovated dinning room and tours of the facility.
Furnishings – 8/9/2017
We moved back to IHM Seminary the first week in August and are now preparing the space for the upcoming school year. The offices and seminarian rooms are completed with furnishing being installed August 9th and 10th. The chapel is getting a fresh coat of paint. There is still work to be done where the music room and restroom were, across from the assembly room.

Seminarian rooms are nearly complete with new wardrobes, vanity and heating and cooling. The main offices, chapel, dining room, kitchen and lounges still have some work but things are looking good.

More updates to come!
IHM Seminary has been in operation since 1948. Throughout the past the seminary has gone through minor update, but is now in desperate need of repair and more substantial updates. Our goal for the renovation is to create an inclusive atmosphere throughout the seminary, for those who call this place home and those who visit. Renovation is expected to begin August, 2016 and last until August, 2017.
