On January 16, 2013 the Dominican Province of Our Lady of the Rosary celebrated with solemn simplicity the traditional “Sending Off” of two missionaries to East Timor. The meaningful ceremony took place at St. Dominic’s Priory, Macau and was attended by the twenty three simply professed brothers of our Studentate, and twelve priests from the Priory St. Dominic and from our Dominican communities in Hong Kong, Zhu Hai and Myanmar. The Prior Provincial of the Province, Fr. Javier González, OP, led the concelebrated Eucharist and, within the Mass, the Order of Blessing and Sending of Missionaries.
