Vocation Weekends in Limerick

There are two vocation weekends to be held in the novitiate house (pictured) of the Irish Dominican province: Saint Saviour's Priory, Glentworth Street, Limerick in the near future. The first is this coming weekend April 25th to 27th and the second such weekend is to be held on the weekend of May 9th to 11th.

These weekends are an important feature of vocational discernment in which those interested in joining the Order get an opportunity to live in the novitiate community for a weekend. During their time there, they learn more about novitiate life, the lives of the novices and also get to know the Dominican community by joining in all the community functions. More especially, it is an opportunity to understand the significance of the novitiate as the first part of formation to be a Dominican friar

Please pray for the success of these weekends, but particularly for those who will be attending

I think it's good to have vocation weekends as it gives individuals insights into the religious life let's face reality nobody really knows if god is calling them it's a time of reflection contemplation as you would say theres no direct line no visions but i suppose when people do decide they want to serve god they can do it even if life is changing in our modern world the world is the same it's people who change thats to do with our environment media etc .
