Seminary Hunt

Driving east on Watson, I always see this tower rising out of the hill. The building itself, is always shrouded in darkness, but the top of the tower glows like a beacon.

Being the nosy creature that I am, I HAD to know, and last night I decided to investigate. You never know how hilly St. Louis is until you go wandering in and out of residential neighborhoods, trying to keep a glowing tower in sight. My poor car struggled up and down, up and down.

Closer now.....
Ah ha!!!

Kenrick Theological Seminary or Kenrick-Glennon Seminary
The building is amazing, and I regret that I can't show what it really looks like up close, but here I am in the tiny drive beneath the tower. I'm not a fan of organized religion, but Catholicism has filled St. Louis with amazing architecture in the form of churches, cemeteries, and monuments. I find it all fascinating.
Ah ha! I found their website! Click here to see the school.
