On a beautiful May day the monastic community, family, oblates, and friends witnessed the ordination in the Abbey church of Fr. Samuel by the Most Rev. Michael Fisher, Auxiliary Bishop of our diocese. It is a goal Fr. Samuel has longed, worked, and studied for since early childhood. We were pleased that Fr. Samuel’s cousin, Abbot Mark Cooper, OSB, from the other St. Anselm Abbey in Manchester, NH, could be with us, to lay priestly hands on him and afterward receive his blessing. There was and is still much thanksgiving, joy and sense of blessing for his family, our monastic community, and those who know us. We ask God’s blessings on his priestly ministry to us and other church institutions in this area and elsewhere.
