On 21 January 1217, St. Dominic received the Bull Gratiarum Largitori Omnium from Pope Honorius III, which first speaks of the "Order of Preachers". The anniversary of this papal document was chosen as the closing date for the Dominican Jubilee.
We invite the entire Dominican family and all the friends of the Order who want to participate, to be present in Rome for this great celebration. On the night of January 20, we will have a vigil of preparation at the Basilica of Santa Maria sopra Minerva (for many years main Dominican church in Rome). The Solemn Mass on the 21st will be celebrated at the Basilica of St. John Lateran, residence of the Popes in the times of St. Dominic. The Holy Father has been invited to celebrate the closing Eucharist.
We hope that this closing celebration would express the universality of the Order. We invite the promoters of the Jubilee and the coordinators of the Dominican family in each country and region to see the possibility of joining this event through a delegation or an official representative. Participants in the Congress for the Preaching of the Order are also invited to join the closing celebration.
