Archbishop William E. Lori, Archbishop of Baltimore and Chancellor and Chairman of the Board of Trustees of St. Mary’s Seminary and University, issued the following statement on the appointment of Sulpician Father Phillip J. Brown, P.S.S., as President-Rector of St. Mary’s.

“St. Mary’s Seminary & University is blessed by the appointment of Father Phillip Brown, a skilled administrator and a dedicated priest who has ably led Theological College these past five years. St. Mary’s is the most historic Catholic seminary in the United States and, under Father Brown’s leadership, is poised to make unprecedented progress in attracting and preparing the next generation of priests to guide our Church and her people in the longstanding tradition of his Sulpician predecessors.

“I look forward to working closely with Father Brown for the good of St. Mary’s and give thanks to Father Thomas Hurst for his many years of service to St. Mary’s and to the Archdiocese of Baltimore.”
