Celebrating St. Josemaria in Dubai, UAE

For the past several years, Jackie Alcantara has been in touch with the St. Josemaria Institute informing us about the efforts to celebrate and promote St. Josemaria’s Feast Day (June 26th) in Dubai, UAE. This year, Jackie sent us an update that we are happy to share with you:

Thank you so much for posting the Feast Day Mass in your website. With your help in spreading the word, we’ve had the biggest turnout so far (now on our 9th year of celebrating here in Dubai)!

The Mass was celebrated by Fr Dominique Helou, the current Vicar (of Opus Dei) in Lebanon. In addition to our friends who live in the UAE, we even had families who flew in from Oman, Bahrain and Nigeria to attend the Mass! Close to 140 people came, lots of families with beautiful babies!

Sharing with you some photos. Thanks again and joining the rest of the world in the coming weeks in thanksgiving prayers for the Feast Day of St. Josemaria!
