More Snaps

If you are a glutton for photos of my ordination and first Mass there are loads on the St Joseph’s School website. Just link here and then advance through.

    hello and congratulations! i’m new to your site … loved the pics of your ordination & first mass. were you wearing a scapular w/your clerics? are you a religious and, if so, what order?

  • Fr. Dwight Longenecker

    Well spotted! I am a Benedictine oblate, and the Abbot of my monastery (Downside) has given me permission to wear the Benedictine scapular with my clerical dress.

    That is so very cool! I was a little confused. I thought you looked Benedictine, but didn’t recognize the specific habit. I’m in the discernment process myself; 2nd-career vocation I guess you’d call me. I don’t feel called to the priesthood … yet … but to the monastic life most certainly. I’m going back & forth btwn the benedictines & the trappists.
