Dominic always saw the potential in people, relied totally on the Providence of God, and was dedicated to mission. Dominicans and non-Dominicans alike will cherish this retreat, which invites you to experience your spiritual geography.

We especially recommend the video version of this retreat, which contains many photographs of the sacred lands of St. Dominic.
