Br Pius preached and reminded us how good it is for us to come together in Peace and Joy and how we are called, as Capuchins, to share this with all we meet. The group spanned the generations but all mingled easily with each other and reminds us of the words of the psalm: 'how good and pleasant it is when brothers dwell in union'.
Three Jubliarians concelebrated the Mass with our Provincial Minister, Br Des, they are Br's Brendan O Mahoney (50 years), Peter Rogers (40 years) and John Manley (40 years). We wish them every gratitude for their service and blessing for the future.
