Year of the Dominican Laity Congress – August 7 – 9, 2014

The What . . .

…“an opportunity for the entire Dominican family to renew the Order for the sake of its fidelity to its preaching mission; an opportunity for the Order to enter into a dynamic process of renewal.

… “to direct our attention to Lay Dominicans in a context in which the Order of Preachers is particularly called for a renewal of zeal for evangelization. It is a time to reflect on the laity and their essential role in witnessing and proclaiming the Gospel.”

…Celebrating the Feast of St. Dominic with the Dominican Family.
