Tomorrow, September 1st 2008, marks the opening of the Provincial Chapter of the Irish Dominican Friars at Saint Mary's Priory, Tallaght, Dublin 24 (pictured above). The chapter meets every four years to reflect on the life and mission of the Irish Dominicans over the past four years and also plans for the future of the province over the next four year term.
It is the single most important meeting of the brethren (some who attend the chapter by virtue of their office and others who are elected to represent the communities and other brethren) and has many serious decisions to make.
I would ask all readers of this blog to keep the brethren who are attending the Provincial Chapter in their prayers, and to pray also for the Irish Dominicans and its ongoing mission of preaching.
