Leadership Changes at Kenrick-Glennon Seminary

The Review has the story:

Father James Mason has been appointed president-rector of Kenrick-Glennon Seminary in Shrewsbury and Father Paul Hoesing as dean of seminarians and director of human formation. Both appointments were announced Tuesday by Archbishop Robert J. Carlson.

A priest of the Diocese of Sioux Falls, S.D., Father Mason has served as director of spiritual formation and dean of students at Kenrick-Glennon since August.

Father Mason will begin the role July 1, taking the reins from Jesuit Father John Horn, who was named rector of Kenrick-Glennon Seminary in 2011. Father Horn, who is working with his provincial on his next assignment, oversaw the renovation and expansion of the seminary facilities after a capital campaign.

Since his ordination in 2001, Father Mason has served as medical-moral adviser, vice chancellor, director of vocations, director of Broom Tree Retreat Center and a parish pastor.


Father Hoesing is director of vocations for the Diocese of Omaha, Neb. He also serves as president of the National Conference of Vocation Directors and a faculty member for the Institute of Priestly Formation. Father Hoesing attended St. John Vianney Seminary in St. Paul, Minn., and Gregorian University in Rome. He was ordained in 2002 and has served as an associate pastor in addition to teaching and chaplaincy duties at two high schools in Omaha. He was named vocations director in 2008.
