The school year began on a sad note, with the unexpected death of Father Jude Burbach, OSB who passed away on August 22 at the age of 85. Father Jude served as Head Librarian at Benedictine College in the early 1980’s. Go to the Kansas Monks website to watch Abbot Barnabas’ homily, and read the obituary and memorial card for Fr. Jude. May he rest in peace.
Here are some photos of the Library display in memory of Fr. Jude.
