On Saturday, June 16, the Feast of St. Lutgard, our Brother Philip Wodzinski made his solemn profession in our Abbey Church, with Dom Augustine Myslinski presiding. Br. Philip’s parents and his 4 brothers were all present with the monastic community.
Br. Philip grew up in Pittsburgh, PA. With a degree in pastry arts from the Pennsylvania Culinary Institute, he has created beautiful and tasty desserts for our holiday meals. He serves as one of our cantors and has been managing our bakery for several years.
Br. Philip entered on October 1, 2012 and made his first simple vows on May 24, 2015.
