I would like to express my thanks, and that of the Irish Dominicans, to the many people who took part in the Dominican launch of the Year of Vocation yesterday at St Saviour's Dominican Church, Dublin. It was truly heartening to see so many people gather to pray for vocations.
I would also like to thank all those who were responsible in the planning and preparation of the event, and particularly those who agreed to read and sing.
Thanks also to those who gathered in Newbridge Dominican Church, Co. Kildare, for an hour of prayer on the same day.
I hope that this good beginning is a sign of good things to come.
