Jubilee Vespers to celebrate the Order's 800th Birthday

Friday 6th May 2016

We were delighted to be joined by so many friends, supporters and benefactors. Over 1100 people gathered for Solemn Vespers for the feast of Dominican saint, Catherine of Siena, including the Master of the Dominican Order, Cardinals Nichols and Murphy-O'Connor, 6 bishops including our brother Archbishop Malcolm McMahon OP, and representatives from 13 other religious orders. The Order was represented by 55 Dominican friars, 70 Dominican sisters, and 90 Lay Dominicans. Pupils and staff came from 16 Schools with Dominican connections.
