Dominican Order Zimbabwe Regional Superior, Sr. Perlagia OP reiterated that the order’s 800th jubilee is about preaching life in abundance.

She said this in an interview at a highly spirited Marathon and Fun run event over the weekend organised as part of the series of events marking the jubilee celebrations of the order’s formation.

She further said the focus for Dominican Sisters is to preach the gospel and this is done by teaching in schools, nursing in hospitals, and various pastoral works in various communities as the order tries to be good witnesses of Christ.

Expressing her gratitude for the splendid work being done by Dominican Sisters across the country, she also acknowledged the great contribution of Dominican Lay associates.

“All our associates from our schools, our hospitals and children’s homes came to join us in this marathon simply to say thank you to God for walking with us and for granting us your mercy,” she added.

St Dominic’s Chishawasha came first in the secondary schools category while North Park came first in the primary school category during the fun run. In Bulawayo, the Dominican schools also clashed for the Dominican Derby which gathers all Dominican schools to compete in various sporting disciplines.
