2020 Summer Saint Vincent Monks: Brothers Together As One

Archabbot Martin de Porres Bartel, O.S.B., was elected as the twelfth archabbot of Saint Vincent Archabbey. With his election comes a change in the name of the abbey magazine from Heart to Heart to Saint Vincent Monks. Archabbot Martin is pictured on the cover with Abbot John Klassen of Saint John’s Abbey, Minnesota, who presided over the election. The members of the monastic community who took part in the election are pictured in the center of the issue. Articles include how members of the monastic community ministered during the coronavirus pandemic of 2020, information on a forthcoming book, Always Forward, a history of the abbey in more modern times, the story of a statue restoration, information on new books authored by Saint Vincent Benedictines, information on pre-pandemic activities, and a history of the Heart to Heart publication, which concluded its run with the end of the term of Archabbot Douglas Nowicki.
