Oakfords Attend Closing of 800th Jubilee Year

Sr. Dagmar Fasel (German Area), Sr. Anneliese Schäpers (South African), and Sr. Jodi Cecilia Min (United States) represented the Dominican Sisters of Oakford at the closing of the 800th Jubilee of the Dominican Order in Rome, Italy, in January 2017.

The Master of the Order, Fr. Bruno Cadoré first opened the Jubilee of the 800th Anniversary of the Order at the Basilica of Santa Sabina, Rome, on November 7th, 2015.  The theme of the 800th Jubilee was “Sent to Preach the Gospel”, a recalling and a renewal of the mission of the Order entrusted to St. Dominic by the Church. The Jubilee year was a period to look back and examine the ways Dominicans have effectively carried out this mission and to examine ways it can continue into the future.  Throughout the Jubilee year, Dominican friars, sisters and laity held various events all over the world to celebrate.
