Dominican Sisters of St Cecilia who are coming to Limerick in Aug 2016
The Nashville Dominicans are establishing a community in Limerick diocese from August 2016 with the plan being for them to take up residence in the Dominican Friary on Glentworth St as the Dominican Friars will be withdrawing after over a 750 year association with Limerick.
Sr Mara Grace tells us about their order, the work that they do and reflects also on the meaning of consecrated life in the world today.
Our interview with Sr Mara Grace was recorded on the Feast of the Presentation of the Lord which is also the World Day for Religious Life and this year also marked the end of the Year for Consecrated Life.
Previous post from SS102fm including a couple of YouTube videos about the Nashville Dominicans.
The interview with Sr Mara Grace is excerpted from the main programme and is available here.
Gospel - Luke 5:1-11
From Limerick Diocesan Weekly Newsletter:
This Sundays gospel account sees Simon and ther fishermen listening to Jesus. They must have been impressed, for when he asked to go out in their boats they willingly let him. From Simons boat, Jesus taught the crowd and then afterwards he encouraged the disciples to put down their nets for a catch.
We have been on a special Synod journey in this diocese. Maybe you have watched from the shoreline, maybe you were in the boat or maybe you were encouraging others to listen .... no matter where you were up to now, now you are invited to put down your nets.
- Have you an opinion on what we should vote on in this Synod? If so speak to your delegates this week (not next week)
- Did you intend to pray for this Synod, but forgot. Start again this week
- Are you struggling to think of proposals for the Synod? Ask for help and ideas, this week not next week!
