In order to prepare spiritually for the Jubilee Celebration, the Brothers and Sisters in the Asia Pacific Region will have a Dominican Family Retreat from October 12-14, 2015, at the University of Santo Tomas, Manila, Philippines. Brother Timothy Radcliffe OP, former Master of the Order will be the main speaker.

The Leaders of the Region will hold a Conference on October 15-16, 2015 at the same University.

The Dominican Family Leaders' Conference is an occasion for the superiors of the Asia Pacific Region to meet in plenary assembly and, separately, as branches of the Family. Various concerns affecting the members of the Region are ordinarily discussed in the conference. This year's Leaders Conference, which will be held on the advent of the Jubilee of the Order, is an occasion for all the leaders to share with one another the various ways the different branches will celebrate the 8th Centenary of the Order. Brothers and sisters from the General Curia of the Order will grace the conference.

There are a number of Australian representatives, including Sr Judith Lawson OP Prioress of Dominican Sisters of Eastern Australia and the Solomon Islands, and Sr Philomena Barivudu OP, Vicaress of the Holy Rosary Vicariate, Solomon Islands.
