During the summer months Brother Robert will work in parishes in Leicester and Wales, while Brother Thomas will minister at St Dominic's Parish, London. In October they will return to Oxford and Rome to complete their studies for the priesthood. Please keep them in your prayers, that God will bless their ministry of preaching and service.
