A chain of preachers of hope : If you need, feel free to call me any time of the day or night to pray!

Radoslava Chernukha was a remarkable woman, who meant a lot to many people in Ukraine. She worked as construction and design engineer in Aircraft company and she was a Lay Dominican. In the ‘Chain of preachers of hope’ the Lay Dominicans from the Province of Russia and Ukraine commemorate her and share her story with all their brothers and sisters in Europe.

A Dominican world citizen

The Dominicans celebrate this year their 800-year jubilee. After starting in Spain with Dominic de Guzman, the Order developed until it became a worldwide organisation of brethren, nuns, sisters and laypersons. What does it mean being a member of a worldwide order? What does it mean to be a world citizen? That’s the subject of my interview with Leny Beemer. She is a lay Dominican and after being president for 8 years of the Dutch Dominican Lay Fraternity, she went international. Now she is president of the European Council of Lay Dominican Fraternities.

 

‘Being a preacher is a way of life’

Although this website of the ECLDF is primarily a European website, sometimes it is good to take a look across the borders. For the 800-year Jubilee the Dominican Province of St. Albert the Great in the United States (one of the four American Provinces, covering the states of Colorado, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Kansas, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, Nebraska, North and South Dakota, Wisconsin, and Wyoming) wrote 52 short articles, which are free to use, e.g. in parish magazines. Below is a sample and a link to the inserts.
