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.
Northern Tour Photo Journal 5 – Eugene
Having spent a week in Portland, at the Holy Rosary Parish, we headed south along the Willamette Valley, to Eugene, OR, the home of the University of Oregon Ducks. Our ministry in Eugene is St. Thomas More Newman Center, located on the south side of the university campus, right across the street from the athletic complex. As soon as we arrived in Eugene, we could feel the warm hospitality of the members of the Dominican Laity chapter there. They generously hosted a potluck dinner for us after the evening Mass. This also gave us the opportunity to meet parishioners as well as peer ministers (student ministers) at the Newman Center.
