St. Dominic's Day 2020
Although we're a bit late, we wanted to share some of our St. Dominic's Day festivities with you.
We began the day with the most important matters: the Liturgy of the Hours and a wonderful Mass in honor of our Holy Father Saint Dominic.
|Father John Lydon, OP, our chaplain, with some of the members of our Dominican Laity and two religious from the Dominican Sisters of Our Lady of Fatima. We promise, after this picture everyone put their masks back on and started practicing good social distancing!|
|Our two Dominican sisters were able to spend most of the day at our monastery. Several sisters from their community, which has its motherhouse in Puerto Rico, serve in our diocese of Tyler.|
|Meanwhile, the cloistered sisters helped in the kitchen, mindful of the decorum due on such a special day and being appropriately subdued. Well, maybe not so much!|
|When the kitchen was in good order, we all gathered in the community room to sing a feast day song--"Dominique". We sang it in English since none of us speaks French. (Now, if it had been in Spanish...)|
