Archbishop Thomas Wenski writes... “I wish to welcome all you who join with us in this (50th) Jubilee Celebration. St. Vincent de Paul Seminary also warmly welcomes its priest-alumni and the former rectors and facully who join us today. I wish to acknowledge also Fr. Charles Krieg, a Vincentian Father. Father Krieg was my spiritual director in the high school seminary and his presence today reminds us of the debt of gratitude we owe to the Congregation of the Missions, founded by St. Vincent de Paul, for having staff this institution in its early years. ”
