On a glorious summer morning, current members and alumni of the Hall joined representatives of Ampleforth and St Louis, Missouri, to celebrate the ordination to the diaconate of Br Maximilian Toczylowski. The ordination—the first in living memory to be held in the Hall chapel—was conducted by the Most Reverend William Walsh, Bishop Emeritus of Killaloe, before a buffet lunch in the garden. Br Maximilian, a member of St Louis, is a student monk of St Benet’s, enrolled on the Blackfriars Studium course.
