New Abbot Elected At St. Benedict Abbey In Still River, MA


Fr. Xavier Connelly, OSB
was chosen today as the new abbot of St. Benedict Abbey in Still River, MA.  He served as Prior for many years and as Administrator for several months since Abbot Gabriel Gibbs was ill and then passed away in April of this year.

May God, the Father guide him and protect him, 
May Jesus and Mary be at his side, and 
May the Holy Spirit light him on fire!   ;-)
