Wow Former Doctor turned Dominican Seminarian Returns to Hospital to Work putting Priestly Studies on Hold
BBC News reports that a Dominican Priest named Fr. Christopher Gault has priestly studies on hold to return to medicine at a hospital. Soon after qualifying as a junior doctor in Belfast in 2014, Christopher Gault left medicine to study to be a priest.
Although he is still continuing his studies as part of the Dominican Order, he decided to resume his medical duties while the Covid-19 pandemic continues.
He is currently working as a junior doctor at the Mater Hospital in Belfast.
He said: “I kind of felt that was the right thing to do at this time, I just want to help in any way I can.”
Brother Christopher is still a Dominican and will return to his duties among the Dominicans but for now he is helping where the need is greatest....
