This afternoon the monks of Conception Abbey gathered together to elect their 10th Abbot. In September, Abbot Gregory was elected as Abbot Primate of the Benedictine Confederation. During the past months we have been praying and preparing for the election of a new Abbot. This afternoon the community elected Fr. Benedict Neenan as Abbot of Conception Abbey. Please keep Abbot Benedict in your prayers as he begins his new role.
