Christmas Visits

On Wednesday last our young sisters enjoyed an afternoon of fun and sharing with the young Redemptoristine sisters who visited us. Over the past twenty years or so a good relationship has grown between our two communities – but this was the first time that some of the younger sisters in formation have met. Our community too were happy that our visitors joined us for lunch in refectory and for liturgy in choir. Later we all shared a festive supper with recreation in the community room before praying Vespers. Then it was time to say good-bye and wish the sisters a safe journey back to Dublin but we hope that this will be the first of other such experiences. Here we share with you some photos although the camera was not working too well- or maybe it was the amateur photographer!!.More information on the Redemptoristine […]

Praying with Icons

Devotion to the Passion of our Saviour has always been central in Dominican spirituality. This beautiful icon of the Holy Face of Jesus was written by a sister of our community. A meditation on this icon is to be found on the ‘Reflections’ page’ of our website. As we contemplate Jesus’ Holy Face during this Lenten season may we come to know and understand something of His infinite and personal love for each of us and may He conform our hearts to an ever deeper image of His own.During the coming weeks and months we hope to publish other reflections on icons which have been written by our sisters – so keep an eye out for them. On the ‘Reflections page’ of our website you will also find pictures of Way of the Cross with relevant Scriptures quotes for each Station.
