Ongoing Formation for Lay Dominicans

Most chapters/fraternities of Lay Dominicans have elderly or disabled members who are unable to attend the meetings.  As part of our ongoing formation we have a responsibility for those members in this category who wish to remain connected with the Order and with their chapter/fraternity.  Our concern for and kindness to these members is a very important part of our life of preaching, prayer and community.  Our community life is tenuous in comparison to the Friars or Sisters but it is still a valid part of our Dominican commitment. Others will see how we care for our elderly/disabled members and this is preaching in action.
