Egil Mogstad was appointed parish priest in St. Olav parish, Trondheim 29. October 2015. P. Egil was born in 1948 in Trondheim. After completing his theological studies in Oslo in 1974 he was ordained priest in the Norwegian Lutheran Church and worked as assistant priest in Nidaros Cathedral, but after two years, in 1976, he left the protestant church and converted to Catholisism. He then spent four years in a Dominican Monastery in France. Poor health and uncertainty as to his calling to be a monk brought him back to Trondheim. For 32 years he worked at Trondheim Cathedral School, teaching French, Latin, history and religious studies. In addition he taught liturgical history and general liturgy at the conservatory at NTNU. He was ordained a deacon in the Catholic Church at Olsok 2013 and consecrated to the priesthood the following year.
