Theology Faculty

Seminary Administration and Faculty

The highly respected faculty of Immaculate Conception Seminary School of Theology is one of the largest of all the schools of theology in the United States. With hearts and minds committed to serving the Catholic Church, our professors -including priests, deacons, religious, and lay men and women -are national and international leaders who provide scholarly expertise and clarity on ethical and religious issues of our day. Leading authorities in their respective fields, our professors are in demand as lecturers, consultants, and commentators. Award-winning and acclaimed authors, they have published dozens of books and hundreds of articles, and have delivered thousands of presentations. They share their love of their faith with their students, encouraging them to learn and live the riches of Catholicism, as they journey closer to Christ and His Church. Ultimately, the professors seek to introduce the students to the Divine Teacher who is "the reason for this school. He is the unseen but ever present teacher in its classes. He is the model of its faculty and inspiration of its students." (Author Unknown).

Rev. Garard McCarren Rev. Msgr. Gerard H. McCarren, S.T.D.
Inviting the faithful into deeper relationship with Jesus Christ through seminary ministry has been a joy. The opportunity to do so by serving the spiritual direction of seminarians and others and by teaching, especially in the area of Liturgy and Sacraments, has been a grace given to me.
