Ad Multos Annos, Monsignor Topper! July 30, 2016 by celeste Leave a Comment What a privilege it was to speak with Monsignor Vincent Topper, the oldest priest in the United States! Monsignor celebrated his 104th birthday just two days ago, on July 28th. Read his inspiring story here. Monsignor reads aloud the Latin text on his certificate of ordination. A moving and beautiful moment.
