 The Wimmer Letters

Saint Vincent Archabbot Boniface Wimmer wrote several thousand letters during the course of his life. Many involved the founding of Saint Vincent, and later its daughterhouses. Approximately 200 of those letters were published in the book Letters of An American Abbot by Jerome Oetgen.  We will feature different Wimmer letters each Month . You are welcome to check them frequently. 

Ordering information for Letters of An American Abbot, as well as Mission to America is available on the Saint Vincent Store.
