1997 Summer-Fall Heart to Heart

The redesign of the Archabbey newsletter, its name change to Heart to Heart and the initial “computerized” version begin with this issue. It featured the dedication of the Elizabeth J. Roderick Center and a wrap-up of the “Preserving the Vision” campaign, a message from Archabbot Douglas R. Nowicki, O.S.B., the appointment of Father Earl Henry as prior, and the appointment of Father Albert Bickerstaff to serve as director of Campus Ministry at Benedictine Military High School in Georgia. Archabbot Douglas’ Brazil visit in 1997 was pictured. Articles on monastic oral histories, the revised edition of An American Abbot, announcement of a new book by Father Demetrius R. Dumm, O.S.B., and the Saint Vincent Women’s Auxiliary filled this issue, along with 1997 jubilarians, new appointments and the groundbreaking for the Saint Vincent College Instructional Resource Center.
