My apologies for the late newsflash, we have been on our annual retreat fort he last week. But on Sunday, September 5, 2010 the Dominican Friars gathered together in General Chapter in Rome to elected Fr. Bruno Cadoré O.P., of the Province of France, as the new Master of the Order of Friars Preachers and the 86th successor to St. Dominic.
Fr. Cadoré taught at the Catholic University of Lille. Being trained as a physician he taught especially in the area of bio-medical ethics before becoming Provincial of the Province of France.
Please join the whole Dominican Order in praying for Fr. Cadoré, that by the intercession of the Blessed Virgin Mary and St. Dominic, he may serve the Order and the Church with wisdom and prudence.
