Today, Sept. 23rd 2016, Abbot Michael Reepen, Abbot of our motherhouse in Germany announced, that our Prior Fr. Mauritius Wilde has been called to be the next Prior at St. Anselmo in Rome. Under the leadership of the recently elected Abbot Primate Gregory Polan, he will serve Benedictine monks from all over the world who live, study, and teach in this monastery.
As Fr. Mauritius will move in November, Abbot Michael appointed Abbot em. Joel Macul as the new Prior of Christ the King Priory. Abbot Joel is a monk of St. Paul’s Abbey in Newton, NJ, a monastery of our Missionary Benedictine Congregation, and will resume his office at the beginning of the next year.
We ask all our friends for their prayers in this time of transition and trust the God will bring about much good through these changes.
