On Thursday, 5 March 2020, the community celebrated a Requiem Mass for the deceased Bishop Viktor Josef Dammertz who also served as Abbot Primate from 1977 until 1992. He was a man of great vision and generous service to the Benedictine Order and to the wider Church. Let us remember him in prayer, and may God grant him splendid peace in the kingdom of heaven.

— Abbot Primate Gregory Polan, O.S.B.
