Thursday, 8 June 2023 is an official holiday in the Dominican Republic. It celebrates the Roman Catholic Church Corpus Christi feast and is held every year on the second Thursday after Pentecost. The celebration is associated with commemorating Jesus’s Last Supper with his Apostles.

Given that it falls on a Thursday, it has become a traditional long weekend holiday for those who can take Friday off, marking the start of the summer vacations.

Headline news will be compiled for the Monday, 12 June DR1 News issue, while updates can be posted through that date on the DR1 Forums.
