Seminary Alumni

Seminary at night

Early on, the Mount earned for itself the distinction "Cradle of Bishops." By its centennial year, the entire institution could boast of some 28 episcopal alumni, including the Most Rev. John Hughes (seminary class of 1826), who succeeded Bishop DuBois and became the first Archbishop of New York, and his Eminence John Cardinal McCloskey (seminary class of 1831), also Archbishop of New York and first native-born American cardinal.

At present, Mount seminary alumni total more than 2,000, with approximately half of whom are alive and active in priestly ministry.

The Office of Seminary Development and Alumni Relations celebrates our alumni and the Mount values they share.

Please keep in touch with Mount St. Mary's Seminary with any updates, change of assignment, new positions, etc., so we may share with fellow alumni and the seminary community. We include many of these updates in the Seminary Newsletter.
