The Institute for the New Evangelization is sponsoring a Speakers Series featuring Catholic evangelists from around the country who will help unravel the meaning and the gift of the Eucharist, providing us with a better grasp of this essential mystery of our lives as Catholics.
Baptized Catholic, and raised evangelical Christian, Fr. Sebastian White, O.P., found his way back to the Catholic Church during college in suburban Boston. He then pursued graduate studies in theology in Austria, and it was there he discovered the Dominican Order and his own vocation to religious life. Ordained in 2014, Fr. Sebastian first served as Catholic chaplain at NYU and in 2018 was appointed editor-in-chief of Magnificat magazine (U.S. edition). When asked about his hopes for his work at Magnificat, which has 300,000 readers, he simply stated, “As a Dominican priest and as editor-in-chief, I want Magnificat to help people get to Heaven.”
