Announcing Christ

It is the task of every preacher, indeed of every believer, to  instruct people in order to bring them to the faith. (Summa Theologica, 72, 4 ad 3)
It is also a part of the [lay]Dominican vocation to promote the unity of Christians and dialogue with non-Christians and unbelievers. (Rule of the Lay Dominican Fraternities, n°12b)

A testimony and appeal for Iraq

The European council of Lay Dominican Fraternities (ECDLF) appeals  to the Dominican lay fraternities to make a concrete and active commitment in welcoming Iraqi refugee families and responding to the various calls of the threatened populations.

This urgent call is initiated by the chapter of the French Dominican laity, which took place from the 22nd to the 25th of August. There were almost 700 Dominican lay brothers and sisters in Iraq and their situation is particularly complex and difficult.
