On Thursday morning, 5th December, we had a most delightful visit from the Master of the Order, Frere Bruno Cadore OP  – he was accompanied by Fr Dominic Izzo OP and Fr Gerard Dunne, the vicar of the Master for our Monastery.  Fr Bruno and Fr Dominic are on visitation of the Irish Dominican Province at present.

For two hours he answered our questions and provided us with first hand news of the Dominican Order around the world.

Before leaving us we prayed together and Fr Bruno gave us his blessing

Our friends Michael and Bernadette (Lay Dominicans) and Mary helped at the reception and at the Eucharistic Adoration so that our community could be undisturbed during the visit – they were happy to have a photo taken with the Master.
