Every Life Counts : Tracy

On Wednesday 7th February the Commission for Studies organised a study day for the Irish Province of the Dominican Order on the issue of the referendum to amend the Irish Constitution which proposes to remove the right to life of the unborn.

Five speakers addressed the study day:

  • Fr. John Harris OP of the Studium presented the Thomistic understanding of human law.
  • Prof. Gerry Whyte of Trinity College Dublin presented the profound legal ramifications of the proposed amendment.
  • Ms. Maria Steen, a barrister at law and an accomplished journalist and social commentator presented the political background to the amendment and its disturbing effects on culture politically, socially and medically.
  • Finally two brave mothers from Every Life Counts, Tracy and Vicky, shared their own personal stories as parents of children who were diagnosed with a terminal condition.  They put a very human face on the issues that we will have to preach about and give guidance on.

We invite you to listen to the talks and to reflect seriously on the issues involved and support the campaign to save the lives of babies by helping to defeat the referendum to repeal Article 4.3.3. of the Irish Constitution.

A day in the life of the Dominican Studium

When talking about the vocation to religious life, and specifically the Dominican way of Religious Life, one of the recurring questions is what a day in the life of a Dominican Brother is like. So we took a camera into our Studium in Dublin to give a taste of what the day in the life of a student brother of the Dominican Order typically looks like.

Naturally the daily routine for the brothers who have completed their studies is slightly different as they go about their own ministries. But the general structure, where communal prayers form the hinges of the day, would be what constitutes the fundamental aspect of a day as a Dominican brother.

Our Studium, the place where we do our theological formation, is located in St. Saviour’s Priory, Dublin 1, Ireland.

If you would like to know more about the vocation as a Dominican, contact the Vocation Director on vocations@dominicans.ie.
