The Master of the Order, Fr Bruno Cadoré, OP is on canonical visitation to the Province of San Luis Bertrán of Colombia.

On arrival in Colombia on the 15th of June, the Master stayed at the Convent of Santo Domingo and after a short break from the long trip, he met with the priors of Bogota, the officers of the University of St Thomas and the prior provincial. He was accompanied at the meeting by Fr Javier Pose, the Socius for Latin America and the Caribbean and President of CIDALC and Fr Francisco Quijano, the Vicar General of St. Lawrence Martyr.

At the meeting, the discussion was largely based on the life of the brothers and the current challenges for the Dominican life in the province. The meeting was following by the Eucharistic celebration presided over by the Master. In his homily, the stressed the needs of people living in this “beautiful country of Colombia”. After the Mass, the community of the Convent of Santo Domingo invited him to share a delicious dinner with the students. This gave him the opportunity to interact more closely with the students.
