Fall 2011 Update
Since our last newsletter in the fall, we have been quite busy here. Many activities have been taking place, and our foundation is making good progress.
In October, Father Edward Mazich, O.S.B., and I visited Saint Mary’s Abbey in Morristown, New Jersey, where Abbot Giles Hayes, O.S.B., and Father Elias Lorenzo, O.S.B., prior of Sant’ Anselmo and a monk of Saint Mary’s Abbey, hosted a reception to promote the Saint Benedict Education Foundation.
At the end of October we had the great pleasure to host at Saint Vincent a lecture by the newly appointed Archbishop of Seattle, Most Rev. Peter Sartain, a distinguished alumnus of Sant’ Anselmo who gave a lecture for supporters of the Saint Benedict Education Foundation.
In January, I traveled to Savannah to promote the Foundation. The event was hosted by Kimi and Harry Haslam at their home. It was a great joy for me to have the opportunity to discuss Sant’ Anselmo and to express thanks for their kindness and generosity. Our network of friends now continues to expand in the south.
The Saint Benedict Education Foundation is one way to spread the Good News of Jesus Christ and we are grateful for your support of our efforts. Let us continue to work together to help those young men and women who have chosen to give their lives ito Christ.
