St. Bede remembering life of a former abbot

Posted by wlpo on May 5, 2014

A man who was the seventh abbot at St. Bede will be remembered.

Visitation for Father Claude Peifer starts at 4 Monday in the St. Bede Abbey Church. The 86-year-old Peifer died Thursday.

He was the abbot for eight years before resigning in June 2011. Peifer was also a well respected scholar in scripture, having served on the editorial board for the New American Bible and contributor to The Bible Today.
