HOLY WEEK RETREAT

This year, our Holy Week Retreat will be delivered in part by the Dominican Fathers at Holy Cross, and in part by Fr Simon Gaine OP, our Regent of Studies. 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 Simon and the Dominican Fathers of our own Community, there will be opportunity for Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament, and for celebration of the Sacrament of Reconciliation. 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.
