He now teaches courses in his specialty of New Testament studies each semester.

All around campus, numerous displays honoring the Benedictine monk’s memory have been set up, such as a gallery PowerPoint slideshow tribute of photos, a portrait of him hung in a stairwell leading up to Placid Hall and a display of his habit along with a sketch of his portrait in the glass display outside the gallery on the third floor of the Carey Center. Saint Vincent Summer Theatre dedicated the run of the final show of theRead More
