Our Dominican School
The Dominican School of Philosophy and Theology at the Graduate Theological Union in Berkeley, CA offers Masters and other degree and certificate programs rooted in the tradition of the Dominican order and our brother, St. Thomas Aquinas. Faithful to the teaching of Holy Mother, the Church, our school prepares not only young men studying for the priesthood, but also other men and women who will be the leaders of local communities of faith. Please do join in supporting this essential ministry of the Western Dominican Province.
First Profession will be in a public ceremony on Saturday, September 1 at 10:30am at St. Albert Priory, Oakland, CA
Those to be Professed are:
Br. Cody Jorgensen
Br. Andrew Dominic Yang
Br. Andrew Opsahl
Br. Thomas Aquinas (Colin) Pickett
Please keep these men in your prayers.
We are very grateful for any support you may be able to give. The eight years of formation, including feeding, housing, clothing, books and tuition, along with any specialized training in languages, weighs heavily on our small province. Without your constant support this would be an impossible task. As we pray for more vocations and the Lord responds the need grows greater. Please do consider not only your donation today, but the possibility of a long-term committment to supporting the formation programs and institutions of the Western Dominican Province. Thank you.
