Dom Benedict Maria Andersen OSB was ordained to the priesthood by Bishop Michael Smith on the Feast of All Saints in St Mary’s Church, Drogheda.  Dom Benedict was joined in the liturgy by members and friends of the Silverstream Priory in Stamullen.  The Priory was founded in 2009 as a house of monks living under the Rule of Saint Benedict.

The new priest celebrated his First Mass on Sunday 2 November 2014 at St Kevin’s Church, Harrington Street, Dublin (picture above).
