Dubai, 9th June 2012
Fr Dominique Helou celebrated the Mass in St Francis of Assisi Church in Jebel Ali, on Saturday 9 june at 12:30 p.m.
We are so happy and feel so blessed to have celebrated the Feast Day of Saint Josemaria here in Dubai!
We realize just how many people are praying for this country when we saw the turn out of attendees in the recollection and the mass.
People from so many parts of the world, whom we didn't know, came because they were informed by the Centers of Opus Dei in their home countries! Others came because they saw the announcement in the interactive map of the website of Saint Josemaria Escriva!
People who have been living in Dubai who were not aware that the seeds of the message of the Founder of Opus Dei are being sown here, attended! So now the little family of Opus Dei in Dubai has grown a bit more, spreading the message of our Father of seeking God in the world through their daily ordinary lives.
Attached are a few photos we'd like to share.
