800 Years Jubilee of the Order of Preachers Official Logo English version

In 2016, the Order of Preachers will celebrate a Jubilee Year with the theme “Sent to preach the Gospel”. 

This marks the 800th anniversary of the official foundation of the Order by Pope Honorius III.

We encourage all the people we serve to join with us in celebrating this historic milestone.

Dates

The Jubilee Year will be celebrated by Dominicans all around the world - friars, sisters and lay people - from 7 November, 2015 (Feast of All Saints of the Order) to 21 January, 2017 (the date of the official Papal Bull Gratiarum omnium largitori of Pope Honorius III).

Resources

The international Order of Preachers website contains a wide range of information and resources.

Events in the Province of England

A full programme of events is being planned, involving all of the Dominican houses of our Province, in England, Scotland and Grenada. These will be posted here as details are finalised.
