Brother Stanislaw and Abbot Mark

On Monday, January 15, 2024, the Feast Saints Maurus and Placid, Brother Stanislaw Sullivan, O.S.B., was received into our community to begin a probationary period before transferring his stability to Saint Anselm Abbey. Brother Stanislaw comes to us from Saint Leo Abbey in Saint Leo, Florida. The matter of a monk transferring stability is mentioned in Chapter 61 of the Rule of Saint Benedict. Brother Stanislaw is a native of Chicopee, Massachusetts. He professed vows as a Benedictine monk in 1998. Please join us in welcoming Brother Stanislaw to our community and pray for him as he begins this period of prayer and discernment. The monks of Saint Anselm Abbey are always appreciative of the prayers of our beloved friends.
