‘Historic agreement’ enhances seminary, SLU relationship

St. Louis University president Fred Pestello, left, and Archbishop Robert J. Carlson signed an agreement that will confer undergraduate degrees from SLU to the graduates of Cardinal Glennon College, although they will still study at Kenrick-Glennon Seminary. The agreement was signed April 23 in the Kenrick Board Room at the Cardinal Rigali Center in Shrewsbury.

After the official signing of the collaborative agreement between the archdiocese and St. Louis University, Kenrick-Glennon Seminary academic dean Ed Hogan suggested an action to seal the deal.

"Can we make our first official act one of prayer?" asked Hogan, who quickly received universal approval from the small gathering April 23 in the Kenrick Boardroom at Cardinal Rigali Center.

What an appropriate way to begin the landmark agreement, which Archbishop Robert J. Carlson called, simply, "historic."
