Dear Friends,

May the Lord give you peace!   I’m on Vocations Ministry in the Franciscan Friary, Killarney, Ireland today.   This is the Franciscan Northern European Novitiate with novices from another entity.   We are blessed to have two Canadian Novices with us this year.  

For the two Irish Novices this is their second year in formation.   Last year they spent the Postulancy year (1st year of Franciscan formation) in the Franciscan Friary, Ennis, Co Clare.  

If you’d like to know more about Franciscan Formation in the Irish Franciscan Province please do not hesitate to contact me at

Many blessings,
