Traditionalist ‘Dominicans’ come to Dublin

A talk will be given on the apostolate of the Fraternity of St Vincent Ferrer in the Central Catholic Library on Tuesday July 21 at 6.30pm.

Named after the famous medieval preacher, the fraternity is a French community based in Mayenne which uses the traditional Dominican liturgy and is dedicated to the Dominican charisms of study, contemplation and preaching. 

Established in 1979 and originally convinced that Popes since St John XXIII were not true Popes, the group soon sought reconciliation with Rome and in 1988 was established as a religious institution of pontifical right with permission to use the extraordinary form Dominican rite.

Brother Antoine-Marie de Araujo FSVF will speak about the community’s current work.
