Interesting news from the Dominican Family of Spain on the WYD Madrid 2011

Following the 2011 annual theme for the 2016 OP Jubilee celebration, during WYD Madrid 2011, the Dominican Family of Spain will convert the center of Madrid into a Dominican route where young people will meet, talk, and listen to the wonders of God in their own languages and communication methods.

What is the Dominican Family offering during WYD Madrid 2011?

“We hear them telling in our own tongues the mighty works of God.” (Acts 2:11)


In Madrid, from August 16-21, 2011, Spanish Dominicans will focus on the value of the people and their mission in preaching the Gospel and in building the Kingdom of God (1 Pet 2:5). We are preachers rooted in Christ and the charisma of Saint Dominic. In 2011, we will have much to celebrate.

In this country, the land of Saint Dominic, to remember and not forget, we renew our faith and Christian vocation in its diversity. We will drink from the fountains and provoke encounters to recognize our identity and commit ourselves to the future in the mission of the Church and Order.

Madrid is an open city in our international and multicultural activities Spanish Dominicans will contribute to the evangelization of the five continents. The mission and encounter are moments to give and to receive. Our program seeks to strengthen hope and witness: in the Church all Ops build the Dominican Family and contribute to build it for the entire world, the Kingdom of God.

We are working on various meeting proposals. We note the main ones:

Mosaico Forum an interactive space dedicated to being a Forum for the expression of the charisma and mission of the Dominican Family in Spain and the world through art, symposia, discussion groups, testimonies, audio-visual language.

Lumen Ecclesiae. A place for prayer and renewal of baptism and the Christian vocation with the baptismal urn of St. Dominick

- A dramatization on the life of St. Catherine of Siena.


Eucharist OP. A special international Eucharist as a meeting place for all young people who come with Dominicans.
