Podcast by Fr Conor McDonagh OP

A short while ago Fr Conor participated in a podcast on the blog “Risking Enchantment“:

Often dismissed as ‘the Dark Ages’ of the Church before the Reformation and Counter-Reformation, the Middle Ages was in fact a fascinating era for Christian preaching. Richly textual, highly informed, and even, entertaining, Fr Conor McDonough OP joins us on the podcast to discuss a Dominican perspective on preaching, especially in the Middle Ages, as well as the work of Humbert of Romans in his Treatise on Preaching.

To listen to the podcast please visit the blog.

Simple Professions 2020

Yesterday we received four brothers into our noviciate when they received the Dominican habit. Today the brothers who spend a year in our Noviciate have made their First Profession to continue to the next step in their lives as as Dominicans.

They will now go to Dublin to start their studies in our Studium, which is in St. Saviour’s priory. They will study philosophy and theology for the next few years and, with the help of God, and subsequently to be ordained priests.

Please keep our brothers who have joined the Order yesterday and the three brothers who have now made profession into the Order in your prayers.
