Brother Vincent receives the communion bowel, symbol of his new ministry.

Our brothers Vincent Finnegan and Damien Casey received the Ministry of Acolyte on Sunday in St Isidore’s College. Rome.

The Ministry was conferred by Fr Padraig Breheny OFM, who had been delegated by our Minister Provincial to do so.

Brother Damien receives the chalice during the ceremony.

St Isidore’s is the Irish Franciscan house in Rome; Vincent and Damien live in community there while they study theology in the Angelicum University.

Please keep them and all the friars in formation in your prayers.

Could you see yourself joining Vincent and Damien on the Franciscan path?
