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,
As every year, the European Council of Lay Dominican Fraternities (ECLDF) would like to ask you to pay the financial contribution needed for its activities, most particularly for the organization of the European Assemblies that bring us together every three years. At the 7th European Assembly in Slovakia in 2008, the delegates approved a motion whereby the Assembly took on responsibility for the payment of an annual contribution from each province and vicariate, amounting to 1.50 euro per professed fraternity member. The annual European contribution, which was voluntary, has thus become compulsory.
