MISSION CONGRESS ON THE CLOSING OF THE EIGHT CENTENARY AND AT THE SAME TIME RECONFIRM THE ORDER OF PREACHERS

  It is from the celebration of the Chapter of Trogir in 2013 that the idea of a Congress FOR the Mission of the Order was proposed as an important moment of the Jubilee celebration of the 800 years of the confirmation of the Order in 2016. The Congress will be somewhere between the two dates close to the approval and confirmation of the Order« of preachers »: according to the two papal bulls complementary to each other in the confirmation of an Order « of preachers » :  see that of 22 December 1216 with the confirmation of Honorius III and that of 21 January 1217 which formally designates an « Order of Preachers ». This is why the International Congress for the Mission will be precisely in the space between these two dates, 22 December 2016 and 21 January 2017, as solemn closing of the Year of the Dominican Jubilee and, especially, as a point of departure for a new path for the mission of preaching of the Order. The Congress’ main theme will be determined by the General Chapter for the Jubilee year celebration of the 800 years of the Order: SENT TO PREACH THE GOSPEL (Cf. ACG Trogir 50).

The Dominican Youth Movement of Trinidad and Tobago (DYMTT) celebrated mission month by hosting a retreat for teenagers of St. Dominic’s Children’s Home. It was held on Sunday 16th October, 2016 and was delivered to fifteen (15) participants. The theme of the retreat was ‘Seek the Truth, Speak the Truth’. The purpose was to help the youth reflect on the value of truth in their life.

The retreat began with Lectio Divina using the Sunday gospel. The parable of the judge and the widow (Luke 18:1-8) allowed for reflection on the importance of perseverance and seeking truth in prayer.

We ourselves feel that what we are doing is just a drop in the ocean but the ocean would be less because of that missing drop”. Mother Theresa


For the missionary month of October, we as DYMZim carried out two charity activities. Our fist activity was to clean up one of the church offices at St John of Cologne Mass centre. We took the burden off the parish council by volunteering to clean the church office. We carried out this activity on the 8th of October 2016. As a way of doing charity work as well as acting upon one of our four Dominican pillars (Service), we used brooms and cleaning liquids to brush off the dirt of the office walls. This was a very tiring task but it brought us together as one strong group through good team work.
