Irish Dominican Vocations would like to send warm congratulations and best wishes to those men who were ordained to the priesthood during the summer months for various dioceses in Ireland. Most of those ordained are known to the Dominican friars and we share their joy. The large number of ordinations is certainly a boost to those involved in vocations ministry throughout the country and a sign of hope for the church in Ireland. May the courage and example of these men sow seeds in the hearts of others in following the call of the Lord.
