In a simple but moving ceremony, Br Denis Hooper OSB was ordained to the Diaconate by Archbishop Kieran Reilly, SMA, on Wednesday the 21st of December.

The ordination took place in the Abbey Church in the presence of the Benedictine Community and friends.

denis-ord3In a very touching and poignant homily Archbishop Reilly commented on the significance of the last few words of the liturgy of ordination as the Book of The Gospels was presented to Br Denis:  Receive the Gospel of Christ, whose herald you now are. Believe what you read, teach what you believe, and practice what you teach. 

 

 

The Archbishop wished Br Denis well in his final preparation for ordination next year.

Congratulations to Br Denis on reaching such a major milestone. The School Community wishes him all the best when he returns to Rome in the New Year to continue his final studies.
