We are deeply grateful for his work founding the Ecumenical Institute for Cultural Research, now Collegeville Institute, 54 years ago. To celebrate Fr. Kilian’s centennial birthday, we invite you to share well-wishes, photos, and memories on a virtual Kudoboard here. The Kudoboard will be delivered to Fr. Kilian on his birthday and read aloud to him. At the end of September, the messages will also be printed into a book format and presented to him. Like this post?
