Kenrick–Glennon Seminary (Saint Louis Roman Catholic Theological Seminary) is a private not-for-profit Roman Catholic Seminary located in Shrewsbury, Missouri in St. Louis County. The Seminary is named after Archbishop Peter Richard Kenrick and Cardinal John J. Glennon, former Archbishops of Saint Louis. The Seminary traces its origins to the early nineteenth century. Since that time the locally well-known institution has provided education and formation to seminarians for ordination to the sacred priesthood for many Catholic archdioceses and dioceses.

The Seminary maintains a graduate and undergraduate division, namely, Kenrick School of Theology and Cardinal Glennon College, respectively. Kenrick School of Theology also operates a Pre-Theology program for men who already have an undergraduate degree but need the required thirty undergraduate hours of philosophy prior to entry into the graduate division of the Seminary. Kenrick School of Theology grants the Master of Divinity Degree (M.Div.) and the Master of Arts Degree in Theology (M.A.), and Cardinal Glennon College grants the Bachelor of Arts (B.A.) in Philosophy.

On Wednesday, February 9, 2011, Joseph Kenny, a reporter with the St. Louis Review, the archdiocesan newspaper, reported that Archbishop Robert James Carlson had appointed the Reverend Father John Horn, S.J., a native of Columbia, Pennsylvania, as the new Rector at Kenrick-Glennon, effective July 1, 2011. He succeeds interim Rector Father Michael J. Witt, professor of church history, who took over when the previous Rector, Monsignor Ted Wojcicki, who returned to parish ministry in Dardenne Prairie, Missouri (a St. Louis suburb), after serving as rector for eight years. Father Horn, who has over 30 years of experience in Catholic education, is a founder of the Institute for Priestly Formation located on the campus of Creighton University in Omaha, Nebraska. Father Horn completed his philosophy studies for Jesuit formation at St. Louis University. He has a doctorate in ministry from Emory University in Atlanta, Georgia, and other degrees from the Weston Jesuit School of Theology in Cambridge, Massachusetts, Creighton, Georgetown University in Washington, D.C., and Loyola College in Baltimore, Maryland. He has worked with the Jesuit Refugee Service in the Philippines, in nursing home ministry, in parish ministry, as a high school teacher, and in field education for a suicide hotline.
