Word of Welcome

Welcome to the blog. It will be an effort to communicate something of my work as vocations promoter for the Irish Dominicans - and to know something of the life of the Order of Preachers in Ireland.

Today, I am putting the final preparations in place for the forthcoming vocations weekend in our Limerick priory. Five men from various walks of life will live with the novitiate community. During the weekend they will experience and partake in our life of common prayer, study, community and mission. Weekends such as this make the life of a vocations director very worthwhile

Vocations Weekend

A vocations weekend for men interested in joining the Irish Dominican friars will be held in St. Saviour's Priory, Glentworth Street, Limerick from March 23 to 25, 2007. Saint Saviour's houses the novitiate of the Irish Dominicans. The weekend is fully subscribed. A further vocations weekend will be organised in early May 2007 in Saint Mary's Priory, Tallaght, Dublin 24.

First Posting

This is the first post in a new blog of the Director of Vocations of the Irish Dominicans.

I hope that it will prove beneficial for those considering a vocation to the priesthood of religious life.
