Before the Chapter concludes, I wish to publicly and sincerely express gratitude to Fr. John Hennebry OSA, for his leadership and care of the province over the past nine years. He carried out his work as Prior Provincial during this time with exemplary calmness, empathy and compassion. There have been significant points for celebration under his leadership, one of which was the Solemn Profession and Ordination of Stephen Shields OSA. Also, there has been the entry of a further three students into our formation programme. John’s work has been pioneering as well with the reconstruction of our care unit for elderly friars and the renovation of St. John’s Lane. The list of achievements is extensive and too long to list, but we thank you and prosit to you John for all your hard work over these years.
