Spring Break

Every year during spring break,  the Junior monks are invited to visit some of the outside pastoral apostolates. Since the early days of Archabbot Boniface Wimmer O.S.B. many of the Saint Vincent monks have staffed and  ministered in parishes throughout the country. This year four junior monks traveedl to the Benedictine Priory in Savannah, Georgia and Saint Gregory the Great Parish in Virginia Beach, Virginia. The Saint Vincent monks in Savannah staff The Benedictine Military School which is a Benedictine, military, all-male high school. It was founded in 1902 by Benedictine monks and is located in the Roman Catholic Diocese of Savannah.

Laetare Sunday

To good Roman Catholics, Lent means 40 days of fast, abstinence, prayer, penitential works. Three Sundays before it begins, all churches are draped with mourning purple in memory of Christ's Passion. A change occurs on Laetare ("Rejoice") or Rose Sunday, when the Church bids her faithful for a day to look beyond the sorrows of Lent to the rejoicings of the coming Easter and when rose vestments and draperies are substituted for purple.
