In the dawn of the 800-year Jubilee of the Order, the Fraternity of St. Catherine of Alexandria in Sofia, Bulgaria, celebrates its own little jubilee – 10 years since its approval by the Master of Order, Br. Carlos Aspiroz Costa OP.
This happened on the day of St. Catherine of Alexandria, 25th November 2005, who became their patron saint. Bogdan Dominic Panev OP, President of the Bulgarian Fraternity writes: ”We are grateful for the gift of vocation into the Order of St. Dominic and try, forgetting what lies behind but straining forward to what lies ahead, to continue our pursuit of the goal, the prize of God’s heavenly call, in Christ Jesus (cf. Phil 3:13,14).”
