Dear Friends,

May the Lord give you peace.

“I’m very grateful to the Franciscans for the week-end spent with them.   They were very welcoming and gave us a good feel for the Franciscan way of life and how each of them fit into it as individuals.   Definitely was a worthwhile expereince.”



This is how one of the young men felt about the week-end spent at our novitiate in the Franciscan Friary, Ennis, Co Clare where three men spent the week-end experiencing our life and discerning their own vocation.   They prayed with us, joined us for meals, recreated with us, observed some of our ministries and heard from other young men in formation how they have and are experiencing their early years in the Franciscan order.   We thank these men for coming and assure them of a rememberance in our prayers as they continue to discern.   If you would like to be part of such an experience why not contact me at   God bless you.
