A good week for vocations in Ireland


Here at Irish Dominican Vocations we rejoice when we hear of good news about vocations to other religious congregations and dioceses in Ireland. This past week has been very uplifting on that front. On Tuesday last, four deacons were ordained in Rome for their respective dioceses of Down and Connor, Cloyne, Dromore and Raphoe. We send our congratulations to the newly ordained Dominic McGrattan, Patrick O' Donoghue, Brian Fitzpatrick and Liam Boyle. They are pictured above during the diaconate ordination ceremony



Finally, the Redemptoristine nuns in Dublin's Drumcondra go from strength to strength. On Easter Sunday, they received their latest postulant Sarah Kelly (from Ballaghadereen, Co. Roscommon). This contemplative community has doubled in size in the past ten years because of their vocation efforts! Visit their website: www.rednuns.com

We pray for these men and women who are choosing to give their life to God in the service of others - we pray that the Lord may bring to completion what he has begun.
