Following the recent interviews for admission to the novitiate of the Irish Dominican friars, we are happy to announce that the province have decided to accept a new group of men who will begin their novitiate in September.
Many will ask who these men are and where they come from. The Irish Dominicans have a policy of not revealing details about our new novices each year until their novitiate has formally begun.
The men who have been accepted were invited to present themselves at the St Mary's, Pope's Quay, Cork city, in early September, to begin the week of spiritual retreat that precedes the novitiate year.
These interviews mark the conclusion of an exhaustive process of discernment, accompaniment and application to novitiate for these men.
They join the current group of twenty men in initial formation as Dominican friars.
Please continue to pray for vocations to the Dominican Order and for those in formation in our province.
