    Poster & Prayer for our Vocation Discernment Weekend in March

Poster & Prayer for our Vocation Discernment Weekend in March

The poster for our Vocation Discernment Weekend (10th-12th March) is finally available. 
Please feel free to download and spread it around (pdf file available here).

We would also ask our readers to with us in praying this special prayer for Vocations between now and then.

Father, send your spirit to renew us (the Dominican Nuns) through your Word. Help us (them) to live our (their) calling fully, as we ask you to draw young women to our (their) community. With us (the Sisters), may they seek you, find joy in your truth and reflect the unity and love of your life to the world in need. Grateful for one another (the Sisters) and for our (their) calling, we ask you to hear our prayer. Through Christ our Lord. Amen.

Vocation Story

During this Year for Consecrated Life Sr M Dominika who, last August, celebrated the Silver Jubilee of her  Profession as a Dominican Nun shares with us her vocation story:There is no one among us who does not have a divine vocation. Vocation is about our deepest identity: it is the call to be utterly free, free to be fully who I am. Each call takes place concretely in ways that are always new and always different, always beautiful and wonderful, because God is always wonderful in all that He does. Who are Dominican nuns? What attracts them to a life of prayer and penance, a life seemingly useless to the eyes of the world? Every Dominican is called to be a preacher. Our particular mission is the Proclamation of the Word of God. This is true for us the Nuns as for all our Brothers and Sisters. We have been entrusted with God’s word for others, not a multiplicity of words, but the most basic and fundamental one- GOD IS LOVE.Love is our primary work. Love for God Himself because He is Love. We bear witness to the fact that there is God who loves all people, who loves them as individual persons, intimately precious in His eyes. This is our message, our word spoken not with our lips but with our lives. We give witness to the reality of God, to His Absolute Being, proclaiming with our every breath that HE IS, and that in Him Alone ultimately do our hearts find rest. We are completely focused on God but by that fact speak a word to our world, a world in which God’s Presence is often either denied, forgotten or completely ignored. From that world […]

We are on “Christmas with Miriam”

Miriam with the CommunityWe were on the Radio yesterday morning. It was an hour long show and Miriam interviewed five of us – we talked about our vocation as Dominican Nuns, our own personal vocation stories and, of course, Christmas. There is also some music, and you can hear us singing parts of the Divine Office.Click the link below to listen in RTEPlayer.Listen.

Discernment Retreat Day for Young Women – 1st November

Dear Friends, The time is passing very busily, so though we are not doing too well at keeping up-to-date with saying ‘hello’, we are still here and remembering everyone – all of our friends in our prayers. You are not forgotten and certainly not alone! We have another day planned with our Franciscan Sisters of the Renewal for the 1st of November, as we did way back in March – for any young women who might be interested in learning a little more about who we and they (the CFRs) are. We answer all kinds of questions, and you get to spend time in prayer and adoration with Jesus; the day being the Feast of All Saints, will begin with Holy Mass – celebrated by one of our brothers – Fr Ronan Cusack, an excellent and fearless preacher – full of the joy of the Truth – a true and faithful Dominican. Do come get in touch if you think it might be a day for you (email: siena3@eircom.net); tell people you know who might find it helpful; we look forward to seeing everyone who comes; if the last day is anything to go by, it will be one to remember and be grateful for – full of grace!
