The Salesian Province of Slovenia has announced that at dawn on 28th August.
The Salesian priest Matild Domić died in a tragic road accident just before the Hungarian-Slovenian border crossing.
Fr Domić was born in Ljubljana on July 13, 1985, of Croatian parents. He entered the novitiate in Pinerolo in 2008, made his perpetual vows in Ljubljana on 13 September 2015 and was ordained a priest in Ig on 29 July 2017.
Fr Domić was in charge of the Sevnica oratory, and would have continued his priestly service in Muslja, Vojvodina, Serbia where a Slovenian Salesian community operates in a Hungarian-speaking environment. Fr Domić had studied the language with the Hungarian Salesians.
The accident occurred while returning from Hungary after completing a cycling feat covering over 200 km around Lake Balaton.
