Opening the Year of Faith
Oct 03, 2012 03:37 pm
Join the Dominican Friars in marking the inauguration of the Year of Faith announced by the Holy Father. We invite you and all the Christian faithful to come to a Holy Hour at the House of Studies on Thursday, October 11th. We hope you will share our prayer intention “to contribute to a renewed conversion to the Lord Jesus and to the rediscovery of faith, so that the members of the Church will be credible and joy-filled witnesses to the Risen Lord in the world of today – capable of leading those many people who are seeking it to the ‘door of faith.’” Exposition of the Blessed Sacrament will begin at 7:30pm. During the Holy Hour, the prior of our community, Fr. Ken Letoile, O.P., will preach about the Year of Faith, and priests will be available to hear confessions. After the Benediction at 8:30pm, there will be a light reception to celebrate the beginning of this new time of grace.
The Dominican House of Studies is a community of Dominican friars dedicated to preaching, prayer, and study. We are a priory of the Province of St. Joseph of the Order of Preachers dedicated to the theological formation of Dominican friars and the service of the church in the Archdiocese of Washington. DHS is also home to the Immaculate Conception Chapter of Lay Dominicans, aka Third Order Dominicans.
