Irish Dominican Vocations is always delighted to hear of any good news on the vocations scene in Ireland and believes that such news should receive the widest possible coverage - in a time when there is such negative news about the Irish church. So, it was with great joy that we learned of the recent solemn profession of an Irish Augustinian friar, Colm O' Mahony OSA (pictured above). The profession ceremony took place in the Augustinian church in Cork on the feast of the Annunciation (March 25th, 2011).
Irish Dominican Vocations sends best wishes to Colm (who will be ordained deacon in a few weeks time) and congratulates the Irish Augustinian friars on this excellent news with the hope that the order in Ireland will be blessesd with more vocations.
