WATERVILLE — Fr. Sebastian White, a Dominican friar, is to present “Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament and Peace of Soul: I Will Give You Rest” at 2 p.m. Sunday, Aug. 1.

All are welcome to attend at the Blessed Sacrament Chapel, 101 Silver St.

White since 2018 has served as editor of Magnificat, a monthly publication designed for daily use that encourages liturgical and personal prayer. Each edition contains a greeting and editorial on something of spiritual significance from White, as well as blessings and prayers, hymns, meditations on the Gospel, essays from a variety of contributors in the Catholic community, and art commentaries.

A native of Waterville, White graduated from Gordon College in Wenham, Massachusetts, with a degree in economics.

After college, he lived in Austria for four years: two studying at the International Theological Institute, and two working for the Franciscan University of Steubenville’s study abroad program. During his time there, he first encountered the Order of Preachers (also known as the Dominican Order) in Vienna.

In 2008, White entered the novitiate for the Province of St. Joseph, and in 2014 was ordained to the priesthood at St. Dominic Church in Washington, D.C.
