Surpassing Expectations

Published by Saint Vincent Archabbey Public Relations on

Wimmer Wednesday. Quietly and undisturbed, we continue what we have begun, intent upon gradually raising our educational institutions to higher levels and bringing them to the standards they should have so that they will not be merely schools for the training of a few people for our Order and for the secular clergy, but will be institutions that through the efficiency of their teachers and the thoroughness of their instruction will fulfill all the necessary requirements and even surpass all expectations.
—Boniface Wimmer, Letters of An American Abbot, December 2, 1862.
