Holy Cross Chapter, Sligo welcomed five new members during a celebration of the Eucharist at Knock Apparition Shrine on 10th July 2013.  The Sligo Chapter was joined by St. Mary’s Chapter, Galway for the celebration.
Five existing members from Galway and three from Sligo also renewed their membership during the ceremony.

Fr Terence McLoughlin OP Galway was the main celebrant and Fr Sean Cunningham OP Sligo concelebrated.  Fr Donal Mehigan OP, Prior, Holy Cross Sligo gave the homily.  Fr Donal spoke on Dominic’s life and preaching at the time when he lived.  
He posed the question as to how we can continue to live the example given by Dominic in our Dominican lives today.  
After the homily Fr Donal performed the reception ceremony.

During the ceremony it was announced that Fr Cunningham was celebrating the 52nd anniversary of his priestly ordination on the day - a beautiful surprise and an unusual coincidence!

The ceremony was concluded with a prayer to St Dominic and the Salve Regina was sung.
The groups celebrated with a meal in Knock House Hotel.  A good day was enjoyed by all despite the sweltering heat of 32 degrees.
