On 13th June Mary Meenan of Grays Emerging Fraternity was Professed into the Secular Franciscan Order. Fr Paul Boagey MHM was delegated to be the celebrant by Br Donal Walsh ofm. In his sermon Fr Paul spoke about the importance of community and fraternity. He told Mary that she was standing on the shoulders of giants like St Francis, St Clare and St Anthony of Padua (who feast day it was) and how they, with others, would be her inspiration and guide for the rest of her life.
