Mount St. Mary's Seminary

Bringing the Seminary’s Iconic Buildings into the 21st Century

Over the years, the seminary has continued to grow, and with it the living areas and classroom spaces have needed to expand as well. Since construction of McSweeny Hall in 1906, the seminary has added Mulcahy, Gallagher and Keating as housing and classroom spaces. While these iconic structures are a symbol of strength for all who have walked their halls, they’re now in greater need of repairs and upgrades. That’s why through the Forward! campaign, the seminary seeks to ultimately raise $4.5 million to fund improvements to heating and cooling systems, and restroom facilities as well as beautifying the building.

Rendering of The Way at the National Shrine Grotto

Preserving “The Way”

A very special path between Mount St. Mary’s Seminary and the National Shrine Grotto, trodden by hundreds of thousands of individuals over more than 200 years, is known as “The Way” to Mother Mary’s National Shrine Grotto.

This pathway is in need of repair. By preserving and restoring it, we aim to create a stronger geographical connection between the university, seminary and the National Shrine Grotto while upholding its natural serenity and nurture the site as a place of prayer and consolation through restoration and growth.
