ITALY | Fraternity of Priests Commences another Formation Year
Updated: Jun 14, 2019
On 22 October 2018, the fraternity of priests under the care of the Roman Province resumed the first of its regular meetings for the next formation year. As normally practiced, the gatherings take place in the Convent of Santa Maria sopra Minerva in Rome, where the priests commence by celebrating the Mass at the Basilica’s Chapel of St. Dominic. This is followed by the meeting proper, which continues to the recitation of the Divine Office with the friars, and then culminates with shared lunch with members of the community at the convent’s refectory. Under the guidance of the provincial Promoter, fr. Antonio Cocolicchio, OP, the priests have identified the next meetings of the fraternity for the coming months: November 19 and December 17 in 2018; and January 21, February 18, March 18, April 29, and May 27 in 2019.
