Dear Editor, I went through St. Vincent College and received a decent liberal arts education. My friends and I see that it is going down hill, and we are withholding our donations. It seems that alumni donations are substantially down nowadays, so the word is getting out. When I read your web site it all […]

Dear Web Page Admin, Nowhere is the culture of denial so entrenched than St. Vincent Archabbey. The tyrannical regime of Archabbot Nowicki has reduced the monastery to utter turpitude. The best and brightest were exile, marginalized or destroyed; the dullest and dumbest were elevated to positions of office in college, seminary and formation. The Archabbot […]

Letter to Abbot Hugh Anderson

As outlined above these are two of the most serious allegations that can be levelled against any religious leader in the Roman Catholic Church in America. Yet they are dismissed/ignored by you; which allows Archabbot Nowicki to continue exercise of his abbatial authority with an impunity comparable to that enjoyed by Robert Mugabe. – James […]

Did you […]
