Student Government at St. Mary’s

As part of the Sulpician characteristic of communaut√© √©ducatrice, i.e. the community as an agent of formation, St. Mary’s encourages seminarians to take an active part in leadership and community building as training for future priestly ministry.

Last Spring the seminarian community elected Rev. Mr. Christopher Ballard of the Diocese of Syracuse as Student Body President. In that role he acts as student representative to the Rector, serving as the seminarian representative at appropriate public ceremonies, liturgical celebrations, and all meetings of the Board of Trustees.

The House Council has three standing committees. The Liturgy Committee is responsible, under the direction of the Faculty Council and the House Council, for planning and coordinating the liturgical life of the seminary. Last Spring the seminarian community elected Alan Tremblay of the Diocese of Manchester as Chair of the Liturgy Community. Joining him are recently elected representatives from each class.

The Peace and Justice Committee budgets, coordinates, and plans activities which promote peace and justice. Last Spring the seminarian community elected Rev. Mr. Jonathan Goertz of the Diocese of Richmond as its chair.

The Community Life Committee budgets, coordinates, and plans activities to help build morale among members of the seminary community. Last Spring the seminarian community elected Rev. Mr. Michael Hall of the Diocese of Trenton as its chair.
