Good News Must Be Preached

Good News Must Be Preached

Good News Must Be PreachedPandemic or no pandemic, the Good News must still be preached. Let us pray, then, for those faithfully labouring in the vineyard of the Lord, and that others may respond with generosity to the Lord’s call to live a life as a friar in the Order of Preachers, and in particular the Province of England.

Recently, our Province has seen:

  • Two new novices – brothers Aloysius and Jerome (September 2020)
  • One solemn profession – Br Thomas-Thérèse Mannion OP (August 2020)
  • One diaconal ordination – Br Joseph Bailham OP (July 2020)
  • One priestly ordination – Fr Samuel James Burke OP (July 2020)

 Is God calling you to serve as a Dominican?
