New Abbot at Saint Leo Abbey

.- The Monastic Community of Saint Leo Abbey joyfully announces the election of Father Isaac Camacho, O.S.B. as their Sixth Abbot.

The Benedictine Monks of Saint Leo Abbey, Saint Leo, Florida, elected Father Isaac Camacho, O.S.B. as the Sixth Abbot of their Monastic Community on Saturday October 27, 2007.  The monks then gathered in the Abbey Church for a liturgical rite welcoming their new father in Christ. An Abbatial blessing will be held at a later date, but this ritual acknowledged the fact that, from the time of his acceptance of election, the new Abbot holds all of the rights and responsibilities of his office.

The election of Abbot Isaac brings to an end an eleven year absence of an Abbot at Saint Leo. During that period three administrators shared the leadership of the Abbey and its ministries, most recently the Very Rev. Robert Velten, O.S.B. of Saint Leo.

Abbot Isaac has been a Benedictine monk since 1988, having previously served at Tepeyac Abbey, Mexico. He was ordained to the priesthood at Saint Leo Abbey, December 22, 2001. Most recently he has served as parochial vicar at St. Mark’s Catholic Church, North Tampa, Florida. He was born in Mexico City, Mex., where his family still resides.

The Community wishes to thank all the friends of the Abbey for their prayers and good wishes.
