Three men attended the vocations weekend in our novitiate in Saint Saviour's, Limerick this past weekend. Coming from different backgrounds and from various parts of the country (Wicklow, Sligo and Laois), they experienced the lives of our three novices and also joined in all the community functions of prayer and liturgy and recreation. A visit to the Benedictine abbey at Glenstal, Murroe, Co. Limerick was also included. The feedback on the experience of the weekend from the particpants was very positive. This was helped in no small way by the warm welcome given to them and myself by the community. I am looking forward to the next vocations weekend in the novitiate very much (May 9th to 11th).
So far this year, fifteen people have attended vocation weekends in both of our formation houses in Dublin and Limerick. Three others will attend the next weekend. As always, please keep all of our postulants and enquirers in your prayers.
