College Of St. Benedict
In this season of giving, someone has taken part of the nativity scene from a Minnesota church. Mary and Joseph are among the figures stolen from a display outside the Church of St. Joseph, located in the town of St. Joseph. The church is led by Father Jerome Tupa, who says the manger’s appearance signals the beginning of the advent season, placed near the intersection of Main and Minnesota Streets.
The president of the College of St. Benedict says she is stepping down next year. MaryAnn Baenninger told the college’s Board of Trustees she will step down on June 30, 2014.
