We are happy to invite you to the blessing of the first community of the Order of Preachers in East Timor. It will be blessed by the Bishop of Dili the most Reverent Virgilio do Carmo da Silva SDB

On the 4thof may we are going to have the blessing of the first Dominican house in East Timor. It is seated in a village call Hera not far away from the capital city of Dily. This new house has two floors. In the first floor the house has 2 individual rooms, 3 study rooms and common rooms like kitchen, refectory, laundry, visit room and office. In the second floor there are 6 individuals rooms, two dormitories for 8 aspirants each one, a study room for them and the community room of the community.  

Beside the house there is a small chapel for the community prayer and apostolic celebrations. 

The house has also and underground place with one side open to the light. In this place we can do in the future what we will need according to the necessities. We can have more dormitories, more study rooms or place for retreats because the National University is nearby we can have also a dormitory for students.

Beside our new house there is a house of the Dominican sisters of the Rosary. They have a primary school and they will have a middle school when the first students from the primary school graduate.

Everything have been possible thanks to generosity of all the brothers of the province. From here we want to give thanks to all the brothers and we ask you to continue praying for us.

Community of brothers from East Timor
