What a week in Dublin

Tens of thousands of people packed Croke Park on Sunday for the closing Mass

I spent last week at the 50th International Eucharistic Congress in Dublin. It was a remarkable week at the RDS where the Presentation Brothers had a stand in the Exhibition Hall.

Sunday's Statio Orbis Mass at Croke Park was a very prayerful event yet full of joy and celebration.

Presentation Brothers came from all over the country to be a part of this special event. I want to thank them for stopping by at our stand and for giving us support and encouragement.

I met several men during the week who are discerning a religious vocation. I ask that you keep these people in your prayers in the weeks ahead.

One of the legacies of this Congress will be the conversations had and the connections made between discerners and vocation directors.

Our Facebook page (Presentation Brothers) has several images from the week. Go take a look!
