Irish Dominicans on the New York Times
The New York Times has printed a feature on vocations to the Order of Preachers. Publishing on 3rd April, the American newspaper reports on vocations in the United States of America and in Ireland. The article focuses mostly on the revival and growth of vocations for the Irish Dominican friars in recent years, and in particular on the recovery of some of the basics of Dominican life: the habit, prayer in common, community life.
