Dom Magnus’ Golden Jubilee
Our Father Magnus celebrated his Golden jubilee of priesthood. He was ordained at Pluscarden Abbey in 1961. There was a rare sighting, for the general public, of Fr Wulstan, who will be 99 later this year at the grand luncheon prepared by Dom Michael for the event. Fr Fabian Radcliffe OP who was at the ordination, came from Leicester, where he is Prior.
The image below shows Fr Magnus on his ordination day. We were able to have a short film of the ordination transferred to DVD for the occasion. It made fascinating viewing, not only for sightings of a young Fr Mario Conti and Fr Fabian OP, but also of monks who have long since died, and the liturgy of an ordination on the eve of the Second Vatican Council.
