Once a year all the student friars in formation from the various convents around Rome from different provinces of the world join the friars of the Angelicum for pranzo. The convent of the Angelicum (Ss. Dominic & Sixtus) has 52 friars from 18 countries who live above the university cloister who teach and work at the Angelicum or in Vatican City. Today it was our pleasure to welcome our younger student friars for pranzo and fellowship. The Pontifical University of Saint Thomas Aquinas is the university of the Order of Preachers worldwide, so it is only right that student friars of Rome are always welcome! Please pray for them and for vocations to Dominicans throughout the world.
