The community of Dominican Nuns of the Monastery of St Catherine of Siena, Drogheda began 2022 with the joyful occasion of Sr Léonie Marie Langley’s first profession on the 6th January, Solemnity of the Epiphany. It was even more joyful that her parents and sister were able to travel from the UK – they had not met for the past two years due to Covid19. Before joining the Dominican Nuns Sr Léonie Marie worked as a nurse in the UK and several times volunteered to serve on Mercy Ships to Africa in addition to missionary work in India and Haiti.
Her aunt and uncle who live in Ireland also attended in addition to Fr Joseph Dineen OP, vicar of the Master of the Order for our monastery who officiated at the ceremony, Fr John Harris OP, Prior Provincial and Fr David Barrins OP, prior of St Malachy’s Priory, Dundalk.
This was a very fitting opening to 2022 for the Nuns as we commemorate 300 years’ presence in Drogheda and 25 years in The Twenties.
