This blog is always looking for good news stories about vocations in Ireland, not just about the Dominicans. So, it was very heartening to see many news agencies in Ireland carry the story of the solemn profession of three Redemptorists recently. In fact, photographs of the profession appeared on the front page of the Irish Times on Monday, March 16th last along with an article in the body of the paper which you can read here. The article was replicated on other websites including the Catholic Ireland website.
Warm congratulations are extended to Tony Rice, Sean Duggan and Brian Nolan - the three Redemptorists who made their final vows last Sunday. Their act of profession is an inspiration to anyone considering a vocation in Ireland at this time. Your Irish Dominican brothers rejoice in this very happy event.
