Six Begin Novitiate

Thursday, January 22, 1998

 Six novices began their novitiate with investiture ceremonies at Saint Vincent Basilica on July 10. The novitiate is a year of prayer and study designed to aid them in determining their vocation as Benedictine monks.

The Rt. Rev. Douglas R. Nowicki, O.S.B., Archabbot of Saint Vincent, received the following postulants: Brother Cajetan (Paul) Homick of Brackenridge; Brother Ignatius (Joseph) Kury of Akron, Ohio; Brother Finnian (John) Gorg of Herndon, Virginia; Brother Boniface (Patrick) Hicks of Groton, Connecticut; Brother Patrick (Stephen) Doering of Denver, North Carolina and Brother Vinh Nguyen of Chester, Pennsylvania, a native of Vietnam.

The periodic repainting and restoration of the Basilica's interior was begun in late summer of 1933, and included new lighting in the choir stalls. Instead of the constructed scaffolding used when the Basilica was built, workmen used a movable scaffolding. The Journal (November, 1933) reported: "This scaffold was (apparently) so easily movable that one never knew quite where to expect it in the morning on going down to Conventual Mass."
