Keeping the Light Shining Bright
Our Program of Formation involves eight years of academic and ministerial training rooted in our Thomistic tradition, a one year novitiate, two years of philosophy, a Residency year, and four years of theology. Throughout all that time our student friars in formation depend completely on the generosity of others and so keep our benefactors in particular at the center of our prayer life. Pleased do add your own regular donation to our continuing need. We thank you now and will continue to thank you with our prayers.

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.
A Festival of Lessons and Carols
The Scola Cantorum of St. Albert Priory and the Women's Antique Vocal Ensemble (WAVE) will present their annual Christmas concert following the customary format of a Festival of Lessons and Carols sung at King's College, Cambridge, England since 1918. The performance includes works by Viadana, Cozzolani, Pitoni, Berlioz, Durufle, and Lauridsen, music from 13th and 14th century England, and traditional Christmas carols with audience participation.
Please join us for an evening of ancient and traditional holiday music.
