2000 Winter Leaven

The Leaven’s first color issue may take some time to download due to the larger file size. The announcment of the Seminary web page, a forthcoming visit by Francis Cardinal Arinze, and the new pontifical degree program at the Seminary are on the cover, along with a photo of Rector Father Thomas P. Acklin, O.S.B., and Pope John Paul II, taken during Father Thomas’ visit to Rome. Bishop Bernard W. Schmitt of Wheeling-Charleston, Msgr. Paul A. Lenz, and Mr. Mark Garcea joined the Seminary Board of Regents. Announcement was made of a new book on Saint Vincent Seminary alumnus the late Bishop Hugh C. Boyle, D.D., by another Seminary graduate, Pittsburgh Auxiliary Bishop John B. McDowell. Mention of a book on the Archabbey Gristmill by Father Omer U. Kline, O.S.B., faculty member emeritus, was also made, along with the appointment of Father Emmanuel Afunugo to the Seminary faculty, and Father Kurt J. Belsole, O.S.B., as Assistant Rector.
