We have an exciting and dynamic range of speakers selected for The EVANGELIUM Project 2019
The Dominican Sisters in Limerick’s first apostolate is to give witness to the joy of consecrated life through the daily living of their Dominican vocation. Their regular life in community, with its foundation in personal and liturgical prayer, is the basis for their active service of the families of the parish and the diocese. The sisters’ service to the parishioners of St. Saviour’s Dominican Church includes such active works as sacramental preparation, faith formation, bereavement support, and aspects of administration. They are also blessed to have the opportunity to visit the Catholic schools of the Diocese and members of the lay faithful who are engaged in teaching the faith. Besides serving in Limerick, the sisters have been invited to participate in efforts taking place in other areas of Ireland to promote the faith, in accord with the Dominican charism and the spirit of the New Evangelization.

Dom Hildebrand Houser of Silverstream Priory will speak on the topic of the Eucharist.
Silverstream Priory is a house of Benedictine monks committed to ceaseless prayer before the Most Holy Sacrament of the Altar in a spirit of reparation. The community of Silverstream Priory holding to the use of Latin and Gregorian Chant, celebrate the Divine Office in its traditional Benedictine form and Holy Mass in the “Usus Antiquior” of the Roman Rite.
Praying and working in the enclosure of the monastery, the monks of Silverstream keep at heart the sanctification of priests labouring in the vineyard of the Lord. They undertake various works compatible with their monastic vocation, notably the development of the land and gardens, hospitality to the clergy in need of a spiritual respite, scholarly work, and publishing.
