In March, Saint Anselm College marked the 25th annual celebration of its Benedictine origins. Benedictine Heritage Week is designed to provide students with the opportunity to learn of the core values that make up the atmosphere of the college. During the week, students embarked on a series of activities such as: a presentation of the church organ, an alumni panel called “Women, Wisdom, and Work,” game night with the monks, and the always popular, “Beer and Benedictines.” These events all embody and reflect what it means to be Anselmian, what it means to be a community and have integrated relationships across different organizations, faith, and disciplines. Also, this year students had the opportunity to learn of the process of electing a new abbot, a process that reflects the democratic characteristics of the faith.
