Three vestition and six professions in two days!

Three vestition and six professions in two days! It was a great weekend for the Irish Dominican Provence! Last Sunday we received three men into the noviciate with the clothing ceremony, in which the men get the habit of the Dominican order.

Then yesterday, Monday the 15th, six of us made our profession of obedience, poverty and chastity to the Irish Province. Three of us finished the noviciate and made our first 'simple' profession for a few years, and three brothers made their 'solemn' professions for the rest oft their lives.

I myself made profession for three years and afterwards moved to Dublin to start my studies! It was a great day a a great witness to hope for the (Irish) Catholic church! It shows there is real life in the church!

I hope to write some more about our profession day as soon as I am settled in into my new home! Some pictures about both days can be found on our website: http://www.dominicanfriars.ie/gallery/events.
