Mysteria Lucis

The Inspiring Dominican Saints

Who were they? What can they teach us? How can we apply this to today's world?

These monthly meetings are open to all and free of charge. They include a presentation and some lively open discussion on the Dominican saints. Coffee and snacks are provided. Donations welcome.

Meetings are on the third Saturday of each month from October 2018 (but none in November or December). They are held at St. Mary's Church, 5251 Joyce Street, Vancouver (near Joyce Skytrain Station) in the rectory basement at 9:15am-12:15pm followed by an optional potluck lunch. We begin with Morning Prayer from the Liturgy of the Hours: if you have your own breviary please bring it.
