Watch the Ordination Mass of the 800th jubilee for the Dominican Friars, by Archbishop Di Noia. The 11 new priests, were ordained at a May 21 Mass that filled to capacity the Upper Church of the Basilica of the National Shrine of the Immaculate Conception, which is across the street from the Dominican House of Studies and seats 3,500 people.
Sixteen men will be entering the province’s novitiate in Cincinnati on the feast of St. Dominic (Aug. 8). There are currently 69 men in formation. Archbishop Di Noia is adjunct secretary for the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith in Rome.
This is our largest ordination class in 45 years – and it’s all thanks to people like you that we’re able to educate and form these young men as brilliant Dominican Preachers!
