Two Novices Make First Vows

Two Novices Make First Vows Monday, July 13, 1998

 The Rt. Rev. Douglas R. Nowicki, O.S.B., Archabbot of Saint Vincent Archabbey, Latrobe, accepted the first vows of two novices during ceremonies held at Saint Vincent Basilica on Friday, July 10.

The postulants making their simple profession of vows were Brother Brian D. Boosel, a native of Butler and Brother Mark L. Floreanini, a native of Alliance, Ohio. They recently completed the novitiate at the Archabbey. The novitiate is a year of prayer and study designed to aid postulants in determining their vocation as Benedictine monks.

In the fall of 1928, the Saint Vincent Journal reported: "Moving pictures, inaugurated and managed by the Student Stage Guild last year, continue to be a weekly attraction. They have been running every Saturday evening, beginning September 29. A half-hour's musical offering by this or that department of the institution preceded every picture."
