David Barrins OP is ordained to the priesthood

The priestly ordination of our brother David Barrins OP took place today in the priory church of Saint Mary's, Pope's Quay, Cork on the feast of our Lord Jesus Christ Universal King. The bishop of Cork and Ross, Dr John Buckey DD was the principal celebrant and ordaining prelate. The homily was preached by Fr Ciaran Dougherty OP. Father David was joined by his family, friends and his Domincan brethren at the ordination ceremony. Below are some images of the day.

Not a big fan of the monastic-wizard alb look. What happened to the good old fashioned amice, alb and cincture.

Anyway Deo Gratias for another Dominican priest!

Praise God! I just read about his "former life" as a currency trader. What a beautiful witness to poverty for the sake of riches in Christ.
