EIGHTH EUROPEAN ASSEMBLY
OF LAY DOMINICAN FRATERNITIES
CALERUEGA, 26-31 MAY 2011
To Lay Dominican Presidents of European Provinces and Vicariates and Promoters of Dominican Laity
To be passed on to the members of every local Fraternity/Chapter
Dear brothers and sisters in St Dominic,
Our Caleruega Assembly is slowly approaching and it is essential for all European Dominican provinces and vicariates to be represented at the Assembly so that together we can develop a common voice that truly represents the whole of Europe, not just a part of it.
In principle, the travel costs and registration fee of each delegate to the Assembly are covered by lay Dominican provincial/vicarial councils. However, there are provinces or vicariates for which this is not financially possible and their delegates cannot afford to cover these costs out of their personal budget, or only in a small part. This is especially the case for Russia, Ukraine and Lithuania.
