Opening Event of "Visual Prayers," a year long Art Exhibit, from October 2011 - September 2012, featuring the artistic and literary works of the nuns in the United States and Canada. The Art Exhibit was intended as our contribution in celebration of the 800th Jubilee anniversary, marking the 10 year period between 1206 / 2006 - the founding of the monastery at Prouilhe and 1216 / 2016 - when the Order was officially confirmed.
We featured three main events throughout the year. The first event featured Dr Jem Sullivan, a lay Dominican who teaches at the House of Studies in Washington DC, and Sr Mary of Jesus OP, a Dominican nun from Elmira NY.
