The New Year also brought us a new priest. During the Christmas break, Fr. Gregorio Vega was ordained a priest in his monastery, Abadía de Nuestra Señora de los Ángeles, in Cuernavaca, Morelos, Mexico, on 9 January. When he returned to Sant’Anselmo, he presided over his first Mass here on 12 January. The community of Sant’Anselmo extends our congratulations, support and prayers to Father Gregorio.
