Scott Montgomery grew up in Lincoln, Nebraska as one of three triplets—Katie (Havlat), Scott and Russell (now Father Angelus). He entered the Franciscan Friars of the Renewal in 2007 and made final vows in 2012. He has served homeless men and those with addictions at St. Anthony Shelter for Renewal in the Bronx. He was ordained a priest in 2016.
The Franciscan Friars of the Renewal were founded in 1987 by eight Franciscan friars, and today number more than 140. They have several friaries in New York City, as well as New Jersey, New Mexico, Honduras, Nicaragua, Great Britain, and Ireland. Their primary mission is “a wholehearted embracing of Jesus Christ and our Holy Father St. Francis.”
Fr. Innocent can be heard with Fr. Angelus and Fr. Mark-Mary on the weekly podcast, Poco a Poco, which offers an insight into the spiritual life and Francisan spirituality by breaking open the Gospel in light of their years of prayer, communal life, and work with the poor.
