Dominican Student reaches out to help in Belfast Hospital

Bro Chris Gault OP is a Dominican Brother studying philosophy in NUI Maynooth. But since the college is closed, he answered the call to return for a while to his former career as a doctor in Belfast to help cope with the Coronavirus pandemic.

Over eight hundred years Dominicans have always reached out to the sick and suffering. Bro Chris follows in the footsteps of great Saints like St. Dominic, St Catherine, St Martin the Porres and St. Vincent Ferrer. We pray for bro Chris for his ministry at this time and for all those who are sick and suffering especially during this pandemic.
