NCICC holds outing

The North Central Illinois Coordinating Council, which includes Gamma Phi and Omicron chapters of Delta Kappa Gamma International, met July 21 at St. Bede Abbey and Academy in Peru. There was a presentation on the life, times and history of the abbey and academy by the head abbot. He even invited the group to join the other monks of the abbey for noontime prayers. Fr. Dominic gave a presentation on stained glass found in local churches. A walking tour of the grounds was cut short by rain and new construction at the academy. State visitors, Pat Gaines and Pam Rightsel, joined this 2017 summer outing. NCICC is looking for another chapter close to the LaSalle County or Bureau County locale to join them.
