The Dominicans are youthful as they prepare to celebrate 800 years



There are many reasons for optimism as the Dominican Order begins the preparations to celebrate it's 800th anniversary. The video clip above highlights contributions from some of the friars attending the recent General Chapter in Trogir, Croatia. Included are former Masters of the Order, Timothy Radcliffe OP and Carlos Aspiroz Costa OP. The fact that there are one in six brothers in formation worldwide gives the sense that the Order is youthful even if it is almost 800 years old.

The Order was founded in 1216 with the twofold mission of preaching and the salvation of souls. That mission is as important now as it was then. Would you like to be part of this exciting mission? Then, do get in touch - we would love to hear from those who are passionate about preaching God's word in our time.
