Don't Know Much About...Viterbo?
Updates to Viterbo’s website can provide answers. Several changes and additions were made to the Viterbo website over the summer. A new, college-wide Calendar of Events ( campevts/index.htm) can now be found by clicking on the “News & Calendar” heading on Viterbo’s main page. The calendar contains campus events, sports schedules, gallery events, theatre and music productions, as well as academic information. Additional events can be added to the calendar by filling out and submitting the form found under the “Add Event” button.

The School of Fine Arts has a new look to their website and a button on Viterbo’s main page for easier access ( sfa/index.htm). Their site contains information on the Bright Star Season and Arts for Young America productions, a calendar of events, links to various departments, and facilities information. The Theatre Department page ( sfa/ theatre/index.htm), found under the School of Fine Arts, also has been updated. The 1999-2000 theatre season, faculty listing, degree offerings, and ticket information can all be found on their site. Photos from past productions also are available under the “Production Portfolio” button.

The “Information” portion of our website ( aboutvit/) also was updated and revised over the summer. A timeline with photos was added to the history section of the site, the new parking policy was added under “Campus Information,” and Institutional Goals were added. Administrative Services and the Faculty/Staff Directory still can be found at this location. Campus information, including a map and tour, is still under construction.
Under the “Student” section of Viterbo’s website, a “Non-Traditional Aged Student Orientation” was added. ( This area contains a welcome from Sr. Jean Moore, a section of general information compiled by a non-traditional student, and a virtual walking tour of the campus.

Keep in mind that the rotating news portion of Viterbo’s main page can be used for advertising your special event. Contact Pat Kerrigan ( or ext. 3041) if you would like to put this area to use.

Vespers at the Cathedral
Beginning on Monday, Sept. 20, the Cathedral of St. Joseph the Workman will celebrate the Church’s Evening Prayer (Vespers) every weekday at 5:10 p.m. in the Blessed Sacrament Chapel. The prayerful service lasts about 10 minutes. Liturgy Aids will be available for those participating.
In addition, a presentation on the "how" and "why" of Evening Prayer will be given by me on Saturday, Sept. 18, 1999 from 9-10 a.m. in the Cathedral Undercroft.
Because Viterbo is a sister Catholic Institution, I am pleased to invite you and members of your faculty, staff and student body to give praise to the Lord and welcome further sanctification by participation in Cathedral Evening Prayer. I hope from time to time members of the Viterbo community may accompany us in this ancient, yet ever new, prayer of the Church.
        Father Robert J. Cook
        Cathedral Rector
