New president rector appointed to seminary

San Francisco Archbishop Salvatore J. Cordileone announced Feb. 19 the appointment of Father Gladstone H. Stevens, SS, as the new president-rector of St. Patrick's Seminary & University in Menlo Park, effective June 1. Many of the Oakland diocese's seminarians attend St. Patrick's.

Father Stevens has been associate professor of theology and vice rector at St. Patrick's and combines theological knowledge with religious counsel, according to the announcement.

Archbishop Cordileone said, "Father Stevens is highly esteemed by many groups in California. Bishops, seminarians and laypeople all respect his preaching and spiritual insights. He's faithful, clear, eloquent, humorous and friendly."

Father Stevens was born in Connecticut and raised in Nashville, Tennessee. He was graduated from Quincy College in Quincy, Illinois, in 1989. After graduate biblical studies at Vanderbilt University, he obtained his doctoral degree in theology from Marquette University in 1997.

He was ordained a priest for the Archdiocese of Louisville in 2000, and after a few years of parish work he started teaching theology at St. Mary's Seminary in Baltimore, and obtained his licentiate in sacred theology in 2007.

As a member of the Society of Saint Sulpice, a community of diocesan priests dedicated to educating and guiding future and fellow priests, Father Stevens came to St. Patrick's Seminary in 2008 and assumed the position of vice rector and academic dean, a position he has held for the past six years.
