Fr. Gabriel Landis, O.S.B. – Former Baptist and Lutheran
Fr. Gabriel Landis, O.S.B., grew up in a strong Baptist family where his Mom played the organ, and his dad taught Sunday school. In his early 20’s, his fascination with the Lord’s Supper led him to a Missouri Synod Lutheran Church because he appreciated their reverence for Communion. He began to explore a call to ministry, but was worried which Christian tradition he should minister in. A Catholic coworker sensed his struggles and shared her faith, which led him first to RCIA and the Church, and then to discern a vocation as a Benedictine monk.
