Brother Conall O Callaghan, Fr Eddie Conway (prior), Fr Philip McShane (novice master) and Brother Paul Hughes after the reception of novices today.
The Irish Dominican friars received two novices into the Order today at a ceremony during the celebration of Mass at Saint Mary’s Priory church, Pope’s Quay Cork. Brothers Paul Mary Hughes (Westmeath and St. Helen’s, Liverpool) and Conall Mary O’ Callaghan (Donegal) were clothed in the Dominican habit by the prior of the novitiate house of the Irish province, Fr. Edward Conway OP. Our new novices were joined by many of the Dominican brethren from around the Irish province along with their friends and families in a simple ceremony. Below are some images from the clothing ceremony.
