On Wednesday July 10, 2019, Mr. Benjamen Hettrick was received into the novitiate and was clothed in the habit of a novice. Abbot Mark Cooper, O.S.B. gave him his religious name, Brother Celestine, after Pope Saint Celestine V. Brother Celestine is a native of Salem, New Hampshire. He attended Holy Family Academy in Manchester, New Hampshire and The International Theological Institute in Trumau, Austria. Father Bernard Disco, O.S.B. will serve as his Novice Master. Please pray for Brother Celestine as he begins this year of formation. Please continue to pray that our community of Saint Anselm Abbey will be blessed with new vocations.
