Rev. Robert Wiseman, C.S.C., was featured in Monday’s (Nov. 11, 2013) issue of the Bennington Banner.
Fr. Wiseman has been named the administrator of Sacred Heart-St. Francis de Sales Parish in Bennington, Vt., and St. John the Baptist Parish in North Bennington. He served as associate pastor at the parishes since January.
It’s a return, of sorts, to Bennington. Fr. Wiseman attended the Holy Cross Novitiate there in the early 1970s. What is now Southern Vermont College served as the Novitiate for Holy Cross from 1952 to 1974. Holy Cross began administering at Sacred Heart Parish in 1952.
Fr. Wiseman told Bennington Banner reporter Mark Rondeau he frequently visits the site and reminisces about his time there. Men spend a year of intense prayer at the Novitiate. It’s now located in Cascade, Colo.
