St Charles Boromeo

St. Charles Minor Seminary derives its name from St. Charles Borromeo.  He was born at Arona in Lombardy in the year 1538 of a noble family.  At the age of 21, St. Charles graduated from the University of Pavia with doctorates in Canon and Civil law.  He was ordained a priest at the age of 24.  While serving in several capacities in Rome, his uncle Pope Pius IV named him a Cardinal and appointed him administrator of the archdiocese of Milan, Italy.  St. Charles is remembered for his liturgical and religious reforms.  He is also noted for the establishment of hospitals, hospices, good seminaries, sanctuaries and schools for young people.  His promotion of the Roman Catechism has earned him the title patron of catechists.  He is also often invoked against pestilence.  He died at Milan on November 4, 1584 at the age of 46.  He was canonized in 1610.
