We know there are more artists in your congregation that we do not have as members. Many do not recognize they are artists though they design cards, logos, dance, are musicians, do photography, etc. They often need the personal encouragement of leadership to realize the gift they are and have. We know you want to promote their work as well. So kindly share this membership information for the Dominican Institute for the Arts. Even if they cannot attend our gatherings, membership offers them a web page and the encouragement of belonging to a group beyond themselves. We thank you for the encouragement of your members. Here is the membership brochure and form.
The Way of the Dominican Preacher: Go and Do Likewise!
Saint Louis, Missouri, October 10-14, 2016
This October, as a celebration of the 800th Jubilee of the Order of Preachers (“Dominicans”), 61 invited participants from 22 countries participated in a Dominican Jubilee Colloquium on Preaching in Saint Louis, Missouri-a global event hosted by Aquinas Institute of Theology of the Province of St. Albert the Great USA, the Institut für Pastoralhomilek of the Province of Teutonia (Germany), and the Institute of Preaching of the Province of the Philippines. The goals of the colloquium were to celebrate the Jubilee as a global Order of Preachers and to take a step toward building an international network of relationships to promote preaching in the Roman Catholic Church. Keynote presentations by Fr. Bruno Cadoré, O.P., Sr. Sarah Böhmer, O.P., and Mary N. Erika Bolaños, O.P. were open to the public at St. Louis University’s Center for Global Citizenship.
