The friars of the Irish Dominican province are preparing to accept new novices in a ceremony during Mass at Saint Mary's Priory church in Cork tomorrow September 14th (feast of the Triumph of the Cross and the feast day of the Irish Dominican Province) at 11.00 am. On the following day, September 15th (feast of Our Lady of Sorrows), our current novices will make profession also during Mass at 11.00 am in Saint Mary's, Pope's Quay, Cork. Photographs and a report on these two joyful events will appear in this blog over the next couple of days. Please keep these young Dominican friars in your prayers please.
Prayer for Dominican Vocations:
Lord Jesus, as you once called Saint Dominic to preach the Gospel,
so now send new preachers into your harvest.
Give them courage, wisdom and grace to make them witnesses of your death, resurrection and return in glory.
Through the intercession of Mary, patroness of the Order,
may they bring true faith and light to brighten the darkness.
You who live forever. AMEN
