LATROBE, PENNSYLVANIA – Saint Vincent Seminary has announced the establishment of the Rev. Adrian C. H. Pleus Leadership Scholarship. The scholarship will assist with the cost of education at Saint Vincent Seminary for students with need who demonstrate strong leadership qualities.

The $250,000 endowment is named for Father Pleus, a 1998 Seminary graduate now serving at St. Catherine of Siena Church, Kennesaw, Georgia, in the Archdiocese of Atlanta.

Father Adrian is the son of Mr. and Mrs. Albert Werner Pleus of Plandome, New York.

“Father Adrian has already had a deep impact on the lives of the many friends he has made over the years,” said Archabbot Douglas R.
