Nairobi, Kenya: Today January Saturday 21, 2017, Eastern Africa Dominican family, Vicariate of Eastern Africa along with the Order of Preachers worldwide, celebrate the 800th anniversary (or “Jubilee”) of the approbation of the Order by Pope Honorius III in 1216. Please join us in this wonderful celebration
800 years ago, Saint Dominic Guzman introduced the grace of Dominican life into the world—in 1216—to preach for the salvation of souls. This is the pattern set by Saint Dominic, in imitation of the apostles.
The Order of Preachers (the Dominicans) is a religious order in the Roman Catholic Church; and friars, nuns, sisters, and laity worldwide continue this vibrant 800 year tradition on every continent to the present day.
