This and That
from the Fall 2006 Times magazine

Peace Doors Since their creation by Sister Mary Charles McGough in the 1980s, the Peace Doors have become one of the best-loved landmarks on the Duluth campus. But weather had taken its toll on the mahogany plywood facing, which was handcarved with a dove and tree design and the words Peace To All Who Enter Here. Over the summer the College had the originals replaced with exact replicas, also made of mahogany. The new versions were carved with lasers, then detailed by hand. The original doors are in safe keeping and will eventually be displayed.

Benedictine Leaders

Over the summer President Larry Goodwin hosted a gathering of American and Canadian Benedictine college presidents and abbots and prioresses. The group meets annually to discuss mutual concerns and opportunities. This year’s talks centered on the distinctiveness of Benedictine higher education (see President Goodwin’s column on the inside front cover of this magazine). President Goodwin is third from the right in the back row. St. Scholasica Monastery Prioress Sister Lois Eckes is second from right in the second row.
