Dominican Young Adults USA Delegation Prepares for International Gathering

The Dominican Young Adults USA delegation is preparing to participate in the gathering of the International Dominican Youth Movement. Five young adults and three sisters will rendezvous July 16th in Toulouse, France!

The theme for the international meeting is 800 Years of Reasons to Celebrate. It is a very special moment for the Dominican Youth Movement which was inspired by the footsteps of our father, Saint Dominic. We will celebrate our history that looks to the future of our evangelizing mission.

The group will visit significant places like the home of Peter Seila in Toulouse and the monastery of nuns in Prouilhe along with partaking in a pilgrimage walk from Fanjeaux to Montreal.

Please keep all of the participants in your prayers during July 16 – 21 as young adults, friars, sisters, nuns, and laity gather from around the world. The US Delegation is Sean Mundy and Robert Schein, Chicago, IL, Kevin and Leslie Sullivan, Madison, WI, Andy Abberton,  Rockville Centre, NY, Gina Fleming, OP and Lenore Toscano, OP, Amityville, NY, and Mary Soher OP, Adrian, MI.
