This week on Wednesday, September 14th – the Feast of the Triumph of the Cross – the Irish Dominican friars received five novices during the conventual Mass in Saint Mary’s Dominican church, Pope’s Quay, Cork.
The five novices received are Gerard Flynn, Kevin O’ Reilly, Fr Murchadh O Madagain, Christophe Cole and Sean Crepin.
On the same day (September 14th), in the evening, during solemn vespers in Saint Mary’s Dominican church in Cork, Brother Alan Hopkins made first profession. On the following day, September 15th, during the conventual Mass, Brother Paul Hughes made his first profession in the hands of the prior provincial Fr Pat Lucey OP.
These are indeed very joyful days for the Irish Dominican Province and we ask you to keep all our brothers in your prayers.
