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.

Golden Jubilee Notice
Golden Jubilee of the Dominicans, living and dead, who have, with little success, tried for the past half century to make Finbarr a better priest. May God bless all of you!
Concelebrated Mass at 11
Saturday 29 September 2007
St. Albert's Priory
To celebrate all my families, Harrington, Western Dominican, Hayes, and others: an afternoon of music with good vittles and bibbibles, open-ended and outdoors, let us hope.
John Finbarr Hayes, O.P.
