REV. ADALBERT KAZINCY, A MAN OF ACTION
l At no other time can we pay a more fitting
tribute to Rev. Adalbert Kazincy than on this,
the fiftieth anniversary of his ordination to
the holy priesthood.
Many years ago, as a young stalwart priest,
he was assigned St. Michael's Parish in Brad-
dock, Pa., Where a great number of Slovak
immigrants had settled.
Like St. Vincent de Paul, Father Kazincy
realized that his spiritual children needed not
only the solicitude of a father but also the
love of a mother. V
With determination and perseverance his
voice echoed across the ocean again and again
until finally his call was answered by five Vin-
centian Sisters of Charity who came to Saint
Michaelfs on November 13, 1902.
To this great man of,action belongs the grat-
itude of thousands of boys and girls who have
grown up under the direction of the Vincen-
tian Sisters of Charity. Without his undaunted
courage and noble perseverance, there may
have never been a "V S C" in U S A.
We, the Senior class of '45, do most gratefully dedicate this book to those
who made possible the excellent Catholic education we have received during
our years at V H S. To Reverend Adalbert Kazincy through whose efforts
our teachers, the Vincentian Sisters of Charity, were given an opportunity
to labor for souls in the United States, as Well as to our dear parents to
whom we owe an enormous debt of love, fidelity, and gratitude, we dedicate
this publication of THE VINCENTIAN.

MOTHER M. EMERENTIANA
Foundress of the Vincentian Sisters of Charity
Death. canlnever separate those who are
bound together by the ties of pure love.
A full decade has elapsed since Mother M.
Emerentiana had passed away, and yet her
spirit lives and moves in the Community which
she has established and whose destiny she had
guided for thirty-three years.
Among the many virtues which graced her
holy life, the Sisters love to recall her great
piety and devotion to our Lord in the Blessed
It was, no doubt, during these 'sacred com-
munes that she learned so well from her Di-
vine Spouse how to live holily, suffer valiantly,
and die peacefully.
Gentle and kind in all her ways,
Simple and upright to the end Qfher days.
Strong and noble in heart and mind,
What a beautwd example she left behind!
We. the graduates of '45. hope' that this year's VINCENTIAN reflects
in some small way the thoughts, hopes and aspirations that have played so
great a part in our lives. -
Four years ago, we were rollicking freshmen starting up the path of
knowledge: today, we are graduates, and the lofty ideals which our beloved
Alma Mater has taught us are so deeply rooted in our minds that neither
time nor age shall ever erase them.
Our years here 'have been exceptionally happy onesg however, we cannot
deny there had been shadows also. Scarcely had we begun our high school
education when, war like an ugly phantom forced itself upon us, bringing
with itself new problems, new heartaches, new outlooks on life. For us
graduates, the publication of this annual marks the termination of our
studies and the commencement of a new life -- for we must now go forth
and bravely accept the challenges that a world at war offers us. And, because
we realize that, the happiness of our fellowmen, who are worthy of our
greatest efforts, now depends to some extent upon us, we pray God that
our efforts may be equal to their expectations.
