On Thursday, November 5, as part of the activities of the celebration of the Opening of Jubilee Year of the Order, the International Council of Lay Dominican Fraternities (ICLDF) met in the Convent of Santa Sabina in Rome

In the meeting, the Council focused on the planning of the International Dominican Laity Congress which will be held in Portugal in October 2018 with the theme, “Our Future: Justice, Peace and Care of Creation”. The Council worked on the logistics of the Congress, the preliminary list of guest speakers and the various working committees of the Congress.

Concurrently with the meeting of the ICLDF, a meeting of the European Council of Lay Dominican Fraternities (ECLDF) was also held. Mr Hector L. Marquez, the President of ICLDF was invited to briefly address the European Council members.

The members of the International Council and the European Council both had the opportunity to share experiences during the days leading to the opening of the Jubilee Year and they were also part of the Opening Mass in the Basilica of Santa Sabina.

Different cultures, different languages, one spirituality. We are all Dominican brothers and sisters!
