All our own work – both the website and the products in the Shop.

In late February we discovered a Website creation software programme (Incomedia Website X5 Evo) that seemed to be just what we needed to work on our website. We had for some time thought that we needed to ‘freshen-up’ our website (and we wanted to add an Online Shop) so this seemed ‘God-sent’.

Monastery News: October

We started the month by hosting the AGM of the ‘Associated Monasteries of Ireland’ (representing those Orders that have only one monastery in Ireland, such as ourselves). The topic for this year’s meeting was ‘Interculturality in Monastic Communities’ by Sr Chinyeaka C. Ezeani MSHR. Her interesting and helpful presentation was much appreciated, given the growing diversity of our Communities.

Monthly News – July

July was a very busy month for the Dominican Order around the world and for our own Monastery. Luckily we began the month with our ‘Community Holidays’ – a week for relaxation and renewal together, with less work so that we have more time to spend together.

The first and most important news! We have a new Master of the Order of Preachers: Fr. Gerard Francisco Parco Timoner III, O.P., a son of the Dominican Province of the Philippines and first Asian Master of the Order, was elected on July the 13th 2019, becoming the 87th successor of St. Dominic de Guzman.
