800th Anniversary of the Order of Preachers

Today marks the opening of the Jubilee for the Dominican Order!

To celebrate this momentous anniversary, the Eastern Province (Province of St. Joseph) has set up an 800th Jubilee website with all sorts of information.

On top of that, at St. Louis Bertrand, our wonderful Dominican friars are hosting a number of events, which you can find at the Anniversary Events webpage.

The international Order also will have a daily lectio divina offering on its website.  You can find more information at the Eastern Province’s website or at the Order’s Jubilee website.

Finally, the Apostolic Penitentiary has granted a plenary indulgence for the 800th Jubilee.  More information can be found on the decree, which is below.  It seems as though you can gain an indulgence for the poor souls in Purgatory every day!  Something very exciting, and we all should do!

All Saints Party, Wed, 11/4

5130608547_79cc5c18e8_oNovember 4: Come to our All Saints Party this Wednesday night, November 4th! Please bring a short biography of a saint to share and a dish to pass around. As usual, join us at 7pm in the parish center in the Frassati Room.

 

Photo information:

Today is the feast of All Saints, and in this detail from the 9th-century mosaics of Santa Prassede in Rome, we see the saints being led into the heavenly city by an angel. The saints carry crowns as a sign of their victory over sin and death through the grace of Christ.
