Last weekend saw the second ‘Frassati Experience’, an opportunity for young men to stay overnight in our priory, join in our prayer, hear about Bl Pier Giorgio Frassati, and go for a hike in the beautiful Irish countryside.

The Irish Dominicans are always fond of recalling memories of past brethren. One particular memory is that of our brother William Barden, Archbishop of Isfahan of the Latins. Archbishop William was noted for his intense spiritual life and his deep insights into the Christian mystery. One day, just before the community processed out for Christmas Mass, […]
The Ancient Greek philosophers had concepts that Christianity assimilated into its own teaching to help penetrate deeper the mysteries of faith. One such concept is that of the Good.
