Last year Klaus Bornewasser, member of the International Council for Lay Dominican Fraternities (ICLDF) visited the Czech Dominican Family. He celebrated the Dominican Family Day with them in Prague.
In his speech he told the Czech Dominican Family about the worldwide Order and especially about the very different situations of the lay Dominicans in the continents of Africa, Asia-Pacific and Europe. But of course he also gave an overview of the history and the work of the 5 members of the ICLDF: their contacts with the Dominican Youth Movement, their reflections on Justice and Peace and of course the celebration of the Jubilee. Together with the councils from every continent the ICLDF follows the lay Dominicans very closely. It is very interesting but also a great richness to hear what the lay Dominicans are doing and what their role can be in the world and in the church.
And of course Klaus announced the next International Congress of lay Dominicans. This congress is organized once every ten years and the next one will come soon!
