This year, our Holy Week Retreat Talks will be delivered by Fr Chris Thomas. Fr Chris is a priest of this diocese, and a good friend of our Community. Each day, the retreat talk will be part of our liturgy, and is designed to help us journey as a Dominican Community and as a Parish Community through the days of Holy Week. We hope you will make the effort to join us for these important days. In addition to listening to Fr Chris, there will be opportunity for Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament, and for celebration of the Sacrament of Reconciliation (confession). You are warmly invited to join the Dominican Community in the celebration of the Divine Office each morning and evening during the course of the week.
