We have done a lot of advertising for this and as a result we have had quite a few enquiries for our ‘Come & See’ Day. This is encouraging. I have attached the timetable for the day. There will be men and women coming, which is good. There will be some of our Carmelite nuns and some of us friars: two coming over from Ireland.
I recently wrote about a vocation’s trailer. Still waiting for that to happen. We made a start but it seems to have come to a standstill. Hopefully, it will materialize before too long.
Other news: We have our Chapter beginning on 1st May. All Orders have these, at least once every three years. This one will be particularly important as we face up to our situation of shortage of personnel.
