Historical notes

the Inland Register

(From the Aug. 20, 2009 edition of the Inland Register)

Third-year theology seminarian Kris Leistritz (left) looks on as Father Alejandro Zepeda (pastor in Oroville and Tonasket) explains a reprint in Msgr. Kevin Codd’s book, The American College of Louvain: America’s Seminary in the Heart of Europe. Both the seminarian and the two priests were part of an Aug. 12 gathering of alumni from the American College (Louvain, Belgium). The book documents the historical contribution and impact of priests and bishops who have served in the Northwest, including the Diocese of Spokane – men whose seminary formation took place at the College. Msgr. Codd (right) served first as vice rector, and then as rector of the American College (2000-2007). Msgr. Codd is now pastor of Sacred Heart Parish, Othello.
