CURIA | Friars and Secular Priests Meet for International Assembly of the Priestly Fraternities


Participants of the International Assembly in Rome with the Master of the Order, Br. Bruno Cadoré, OP

From 22-26 February 2016, 16 secular priests and 15 friars gathered together at the Casa del Pellegrino in Rome for the International Meeting of Representatives of Priestly Fraternities of St. Dominic. The assembly aimed to respond to the request of the recent General Chapter of Rome concerning the revision of the Rule of the fraternities, which has remained unchanged since its approval ad experimentum in 1972, and the subsequent definitive approval by the Congregation for Institutes of Consecrated Life and Societies of Apostolic Life on 3 December 1996.


As of recent inquiries into the status of the fraternities in the Order, there are a total of 303 members in 12 countries, which include 11 organized fraternities and emerging groups from 9 Provinces, with 7 more Provinces having individual members without established local fraternities. For the assembly in Rome, the participants represented the following:
