High, and after he graduated from Cardinal Glennon College, he was sent to the Pontifical North American College seminary in Rome, Italy. Father Samson studied Sacred Scripture at the Pontifical Biblical Institute, and will be defending, this fall at the Pontifical Gregorian University (Rome), his doctoral dissertation on Jesus’ command: “Be perfect as your Heavenly Father is perfect” (Matthew 5:48). While currently residing at the Basilica of St. Louis, the King (“The Old Cathedral”)), Father Samson teaches the New Testament courses at Kenrick-Glennon Seminary and leads the transitional deacons on a Biblical Archaeology course/pilgrimage to the Holy Land every year.
