Emergency Alerts & Notices
Whenever an emergency exists or a situation makes it necessary to immediately notify the Saint Charles Seminary community, the Seminary Messaging System will be put into effect.
This messaging system helps the Seminary to send emergency text alerts and other important notifications to you quickly during a major crisis or emergency through all of your pre-registered devices (cell phone, text, email, computer, and other hand-held devices).
Voice mails, e-mails and text messages can be sent immediately to your phone or other mobile device. Since Text Messages may be charged to your account, you can either opt in or opt out of receiving text messages.
We strongly encourage participation in the Seminary Messaging System. This is a voluntary program and you can withdraw at any time. Students, faculty, staff, and tenants of Saint Charles Borromeo are eligible for this service.
The phone numbers and e-mail addresses you provide will be used for Seminary messages and emergency communications only.
If severe weather conditions occur during normal operating hours, a decision will be communicated from the Office of the CFP/COO through the Seminary’s established channels of communication.
If severe weather conditions impact evenings or weekend events a decision will be communicated from the Offices of the School of Theological Studies (Evening Classes) and Permanent Diaconate (Weekend Workshops) through the Seminary’s established channels of communication.
If a decision is made to close the campus, classes will be shifted to Zoom or other technologies. Resident teachers and students can still hold classes in the classroom as long as off campus students are able to attend via Zoom or other technologies.
If the Seminary is open, any employee who does not work as scheduled will be charged a vacation day.
This information does not apply to essential service personnel. Directors of these departments will inform their respective employees whether or not they are required to report to work.
