First Professions in Dublin!

Br Cletus kneels as he makes his first profession of vows

We had a great celebration in Dublin recently when three young men made their First Profession at the end of our Congregation Chapter at the Emmaus Retreat and Conference Centre in Swords.

Br Andrew Saul (Our Lady of the Americas Province), Br Cletus Gubil (West Africa Province) and Br Philip Tengan (West Africa Province) had completed their novitiate and were ready to make a one year commitment to the vows of poverty, chastity and obedience.

Needless to say it was a joyful occasion and it was wonderful to see these three young men take the next step on their vocation journey.

You can see some photos from the event on our congregation website

A time to pause...

I haven't been posting very much lately.

My father went to his Eternal Reward recently. After the initial shock and deep sadness at losing a parent there has been plenty of work at home over the last few weeks.

I ask you to keep me in the prayers and pray for the happy repose of my dad, Raymond.

Talk soon.
