800th Anniversary of the Dominican Order

From November 7, 2015 – January 21, 2017, the Order of Friars Preachers (Dominicans) are celebrating the 800th anniversary, or Jubilee, of the approbation of the Order by Pope Honorius III in 1216. 800 years ago, Saint Dominic de Guzman introduced Dominican life into the world to preach the Gospel for the salvation of souls.  Across the world Dominicans will mark the Jubilee with various events highlighting Dominican history and celebrations oriented toward God, from whom we receive our many gifts.
