The third annual Dominican family vocations day will take place on Saturday, March 26th, 2011. It will be hosted in the Dominican Resource centre, Navan Road, Dublin 7. This event has grown in popularity over the past three years and is directed towards women and men who have an interest in the vocation of the four branches of the Dominican family - namely the contemplative nuns, the apostolic sisters, the lay Dominicans and the friars of the Order. Participants will have an opportunity to hear a guest speaker situate vocation as it relates to contemporary society and culture, and also those attending will hear from members of each branch of the Dominican family about their life, work, ministry and vocation. Central to the vocations day is prayer (the liturgy of the church - divine office) and the celebration of the eucharist.
A very important aspect of the event is the coming together with other young (and not so young) people who have an interest in the Dominican charism of preaching, along with an opportunity to meet Dominican men and women and share experiences. It is important to book early for this event. You can do so by contacting me firstname.lastname@example.org
