HISTORY

HOUSE OF SANTO DOMINGO Seoul

This community, made up of three houses, was inaugurated on November 8, 1994. The original house was donated by the congregation “Misioneras de Santo Domingo”. Later on, the other two houses were acquired by the Province of the Holy Rosary. The main activity of this community has always been the formation of the postulants, until two years ago when this activity was transferred to our community of Ansan. All the ordained Korean priests of our Province have received their first Dominican formation in this community. Besides the formation of the postulants, the other two main activities of the Fathers of this community have been the promotion of the confraternity of the Holy Rosary and the Third Order of Saint Dominic.

HOUSE OUR LADY OF THE ROSARY Ansan

This community was inaugurated in 2003. Fr. Luis Alberto Martin Rey passed away while he was working for the construction of this building. The original plan for this house was ‘novitiate house and pastoral center’. In 2003 and 2004, total 8 novices were trained in this place. Since the novitiate house of the Province moved to Hong-Kong, this community has dedicated to pastoral works, retreats, and Christian formation. In 2013, this house became a formation house for Korean aspirants. The promotion for the confraternity of the Holy Rosary and the Third Order of Saint Dominic became one important apostolate for this house, as well.
