Mission

With your help, we preach and teach the Gospel of Jesus Christ for the salvation of souls, working to address the spiritual and intellectual poverty of our time. We belong to the international Order of Preachers, founded in AD1216 by St. Dominic. We minister especially in the Western United States and in some foreign missions. Specifically, we radiate the Gospel in city parishes, we unite faith and reason in college campus ministries, and we bring the hope of the Gospel to the poor and forgotten in our international missions. We also serve in specialized apostolates such as the Dominican School of Philosophy and Theology, the Rosary Center and Confraternity, the St. Jude Shrine and many others. We are dedicated to a life of prayer, study, contemplation and service.

Dominican Student Brother Formation

One of the Western Dominican Province's primary activities is the education and formation of Dominican student brothers (Dominican seminarians). As such, the Dominicans are one of the fastest growing men's Catholic religious organizations in the U.S.

Formation is accomplished through eight years of rigorous formation, including a graduate education at our Dominican School; room, board, and formation at our Dominican House of Studies; as well as numerous outside academic and spiritual formation work, such as foreign study.
