August 8 - Solemnity of Saint Dominic

Happy Solemnity of Saint Dominic!

It is now 813 years since St Dominic de Guzman founded the nuns of the Order of Preachers. By their hidden lives of prayer and penance, these first sisters worked with our holy father to preach the hope of the Gospel of Jesus Christ throughout southern France.

To celebrate this feast in honour of our brother, we want to share with you the new sequence we sang at Mass today. May we continue to follow in the footsteps of St. Dominic, and sing the joy of the God's love throughout the world.

Sr. Marie Thomas Lawrie
