Acts of the Third International Congress

From 4 to 10 October 2018 almost 140 friars, nuns, sisters and laity gathered at the Styler Hotel in Fatima to attend the Third International Congress.

Those days were days of work: personal, in commissions and all together to verify the state of the laity and provide guidance for the next decade.
There were many speeches, many debates, many proposals, many votes but also many liturgies and many after dinner for getting a laugh, music, and drinks.

The publication of the Acts of the International Congress brings in the Provinces, Vicariates and Chapters the work done and the suggestions to prepare for the challenges we face in the future.

The proposals voted and approved (the Acts show only these) will have to be implemented in the Provincial Directories.

We hope to obtain the approval of the Holy See for the changes to the Rules accompanied, as always, by the General Declarations of the Master of the Order.

The Acts are in English at present. The French and Spanish versions are almost ready. We have worked hard to reach this date and hope for your understanding: we also want to celebrate the Birth of Our Lord slowly.


We wish you a Merry Christmas.

  1. What a joy to receive this gift at this “Special time” of the Season. Congratulations fr Rui Lopes OP and the I.C.L.D.F. for the enormous task set before you over these past years. I was pleased to see so many of our friars present as it is extremely important that they realise that so many of us are willing and able to assist them, from time to time. It is only now after 52yrs that Vatican 11 is being allowed to functiom as our Church hoped for. Although Vatican 11 stated clearly the important role of the Laity, it has taken all these years to filter down and people to realise that there are no 1st, 2nd and 3rd Orders. As Dominicans we ALL share the same Mission. I am so grateful for the enormous amount of time and work that has gone into our 2018 Congress and I am quite certain that from our Master Bruno Cadore, OP to ALL those who were fortunate to be present, the grace received was enormous. May the love of Christ be with you all.

  2. It’s a pity we, Brazilians, have to translate into Portuguese all the documents of the Order. I know the languages adopted are French, English and Spanish and sometimes I come across something in Italian. Is there a possibility of including Portuguese as a fourth language ? Thank you!
