Student Spotlight: Reynaldo Guillen '23

This Summer rising Senior Reynaldo Guillen '23  will be attending the Summer Seminary Immersion Program with The University of Notre Dame's Congregation of the Holy Cross.


Led by priests, brothers, and seminarians of the Congregation of Holy Cross, the Summer Seminary Immersion Program (SSIP) is a two-week academic experience designed for high school aged men (15-18 years old) interested in deepening their relationship with Christ and His Church. SSIP is also open to high school men who may have considered a more serious calling to priesthood or to life as a religious brother.


The program helps young men explore discernment of God’s call through study of Sacred Scripture, Sacred Tradition, the office of the priesthood, and the consecrated life. Taking place on the campus of the University of Notre Dame, participants will be housed at Moreau Seminary, allowing them first-hand experience of seminary life.


Additionally, the daily schedule will include Holy Mass, Liturgy of the Hours, social time, exercise and leisure, and other community-building opportunities both on and off-campus. Students will have the opportunity to engage in service-learning activities along with participants in the Summer Scholars Program.
