Celebrating 800 years of Dominican Life – Solomon Style

Celebrating 800 years of Dominican Life – Solomon Style

More than 400 people, including sisters, friars and families with whom they are engaged in ministry, as well as religious from other congregations and secular priests, participated in a Eucharistic celebration of the 800 years anniversary of the Order. 

The Dominican sisters and brothers with groups of youth from Lunga, Maneaba and Redbeach formed the choir and different communities added other dimensions to the liturgy.  The Archbishop-elect, Bishop Chris Cardone OP, presided at the Mass.

After the celebration, festivities continued with much feasting.

After Mass there was a powerpoint presentation of the history of the Dominican Order in the Solomon Islands – 60 years old this year - and Australia.  The news of the celebration was published on the front page of the Solomon Star.

Please remember the new Archbishop and his people in your prayers.  The installation will take place on 11th September in Honiara.
