New Novices: Richard Cutting, Ronan Sharpley and Damian Casey

On Tuesday 10 September three new novices were received into the Franciscan novitiate in Ennis friary by Minister Provinical, Hugh McKenna, OFM.

Ronan Sharpley and Damian Casey for the Irish Province and Richard Cutting for the English Province begin their year as novices after completing the postulancy programme in Killarney friary.

The year will be primarily devoted to prayer, a deepening of their understanding of the Franciscan life, charism and spirituality, and a continuing discernment of their vocation.

In all this we pray that they may be well supported by their Franciscan brothers and guided by the Spirit of the Lord.
