You are Peter, and upon this rock I will build my Church.
On This Date…
On June 29, 1932, Abbot Bernard Pennings, O.Praem., in De Pere, Wisconsin, telegraphed Father Michael McKeough, O.Praem., in Shelby, Montana, appointing Father McKeough the first headmaster of Archmere Academy. He telegraphed his repsonse at 4:33 p.m. that same day:

Today is the Solemnity of Saints Peter and Paul. In today’s Gospel, Jesus said, “You are Peter, and upon this rock I will build my church.” Abbot Pennings and Father McKeough built Archmere on the rock of their faith in Jesus.
