On Saturday 1st September in the ancient Franciscan church in Multyfarnham, Country Westmeath, Brother Vincent Finnegan OFM was ordained a deacon by Bishop Micheal Smith of Meath.
Family members, friends and friars joined in the happy celebration.
Vincent, after studying theology in Rome for the past several years, has now been assigned to the Franciscan Friary at Merchants’ Quay, Dublin.
There he will carry out his diaconate ministry and also continue his preparation for the priesthood.
God willing, Vincent will be ordained priest next year. Please pray for him and our other friars in formation.
