Campus Ministries

The Western Dominican Province is pleased to be involved in ministering to college and university campus students, faculty, and staff.  In some cases, these ministries are officially named parishes, but the parish boundaries are typically the boundaries of the educational entity.

Specialized Ministries

Specialized ministries involve individual friars engaging in ministry by personal choice, or by assignment.  Although the province does not make the commitment to replace a friar when they are reassigned elsewhere, the province recognizes the need to reach out farther than its commitments.

The friars of the province formally publish their academic and non-academic works with various publishers.  On occasion, the province even publishes selected works.  Publishing is an important ministry to help make accessible the truth, the life, and the way of Christ in the World.  We hope you enjoy exploring the good work of our friars.
