These past two weeks four of our sisters have been participating in a theology course for Contempaltive nuns, hosted by the Redemptoristine community, Dublin.  So we are rather late in sharing some pictures of Sr M Dominika’s Silver Jubilee of Profession – celebrated on the 13th August –  Fr Gerard Dunne OP, Vicar of the Master of the Order for our monastery, was chief celebrant at Eucharistic celebration and Fr Anthony McMullan OP, from the local priory concelebrated with him.  It was just a community celebration but nonetheless a very joyful occasion.  We had a special recreation in the afternoon and afterwards the more agile among us had a game of hurley in the garden – could one call it a game? or just having fun?  Even Dobby the cat came to watch them.  We hope to publish Sr M Dominika’s very interesting vocation story here shortly – leading her all the way from her native Belarus via Vilnius, Krakow to Drogheda, Ireland – so keep an eye out.
