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.

This is a short video about the ordination to the priesthood of Father Philip Mulryne OP by His Grace Archbishop Joseph Augustine Di Noia OP during the 11.00am celebration of Mass in Saint Saviour’s Church, Dominican Street, on the 8th of July 2017. Archbishop Augustine Di Noia is Assistant Secretary at the Congregation of the Doctrine of the Faith and he travelled from Rome for today’s special ceremony. Fr. Philip OP is ordained a priest for the Dominican Order (Order of Preachers).
Philip Mulryne was born in Belfast, and whilst playing for his parish soccer team: Saint Oliver Plunkett, Philip was spotted by a scout for Manchester United Football Club and invited as a 14 year old to go to Manchester for a trial. Philip impressed and then signed a schoolboy contract for 2 years. In 1994 Philip finished secondary school and went to Manchester United full time as a professional on a four-year contract. Making his debut in 1997 against Ipswich Town Football Club, Philip played five times in total for the first team before being transferred to Norwich City Football Club in 1999, playing 135 times for Norwich City during a period of six years. Philip made his debut for the Northern Ireland Football Team in 1997 against Belgium and went on to play 27 times for Northern Ireland, scoring three goals.
After short spells at Cardiff City and Leyton Orient, Philip retired officially from football in 2009 and entered the Diocesan Seminary of Saint Malachy’s Belfast, spending two years studying philosophy at Queens University Belfast and at the Maryvale Institute. Philip completed his studies in philosophy and went to the Pontifical Irish College, Rome, to study theology for one year at the Gregorian University before discerning a call to religious life. Philip entered the Dominican Novitiate House in Cork in 2012.
Please keep Fr. Philip OP in your prayers as he starts the next step of his life as a Dominican in his priestly vocation!

The Year of Consecrated Life begins today, November 30. As a way of marking this year, some dedicated Irish laypeople have produced a beautiful video which features the testimonies of five religious, and includes shots of our life here in St Saviour’s. It’s a great way to remind people that consecrated life is not a private commitment on the part of some religious, but is something for the whole Church. All of us benefit from consecrated life, and all of us should do what we can to promote it. You could start by watching this video and sharing it with your friends!

A short video in which brothers of the Irish Province of the Dominicans share a few concepts about different aspects of our Dominican vocation and the Dominican Life. Some of these elements are our prayer and contemplation, our praying together in choir, our life of study, of preaching and ministry and of community.
