2001 Spring-Summer Heart to Heart

This 32-page newsletter has almost 100 color photos. Lech Walesa, former president of Poland, and former Pennsylvania Governor Tom Ridge, as well as Latrobe native and golfing legend Arnold Palmer are on the cover. The governer was in Latrobe to announce funding for the Winnie Palmer Nature Reserve adjacent to the Saint Vincent campus. Archabbot Douglas R. Nowicki serves on the board of the reserve. Archabbot Douglas also introduced Lech Walesa as he spoke to a large crowd in Greensburg. There is a story on the opening of the Gristmill General Store, ordinations, professions, a visit to the Archabbey’s mission in Brazil, and a recounting of the visit by Francis Cardinal George, who received an honorary doctorate from Saint Vincent Seminary. The Archabbey welcomed seven new novices, and a group of visitors from Missouri, as well as visitors from Europe and China.
