It is from the celebration of the Chapter of Trogir in 2013 that the idea of a Congress FOR the Mission of the Order was proposed as an important moment of the Jubilee celebration of the 800 years of the confirmation of the Order in 2016. The Congress will be somewhere between the two dates close to the approval and confirmation of the Order« of preachers »: according to the two papal bulls complementary to each other in the confirmation of an Order « of preachers » : see that of 22 December 1216 with the confirmation of Honorius III and that of 21 January 1217 which formally designates an « Order of Preachers ». This is why the International Congress for the Mission will be precisely in the space between these two dates, 22 December 2016 and 21 January 2017, as solemn closing of the Year of the Dominican Jubilee and, especially, as a point of departure for a new path for the mission of preaching of the Order. The Congress’ main theme will be determined by the General Chapter for the Jubilee year celebration of the 800 years of the Order: SENT TO PREACH THE GOSPEL (Cf. ACG Trogir 50).
