Pope Saint John Paul II wrote a personal letter to the Order of Preachers (Dominican Order), in which he encouraged the Order to continue “preaching the Gospel for the salvation of souls.” By the grace of God, the holy preaching continues by preaching the Word through various forms of evangelization; teaching and scholarship; parochial service; and foreign missionary work.

To the right of Our Lady of Fatima at the shrine of the Saint John Paul II Society here in New York, an icon with Saint Hyacinth and Blessed Ceslaus adorns the wall. Who are these men, and how do they relate to St. John Paul II?

The Order of Preachers are redoubling their efforts to retake academia. Ten years ago, the Dominican House of Studies (DHS) in Washington, DC established the Thomistic Institute in order to bring their charism to American and British students.

A new interdisciplinary conference that will probe the connections between faith and science is being held this week at the Thomistic Institute at the Dominican House of Studies in Washington, D.C.

In September 2017, Fr. Martin Martiny, O.P, became the first Dominican chaplain of the University of Louisville, which has an estimated 7,000 Catholics in a student body of 22,500.

One speaker took a “deep dive” into the Thomistic view of civil punishment. Another explored how St. Thomas Aquinas helps us to think about the possibility of life on other worlds. A third lecturer untangled the textual history behind the Hebrew word for God in the Old Testament.

Credo weaves in teachings on prayer from the beginning in order to introduce participants to the Church’s life of prayer.

A Letter From Brian and Amy Shaw
We’re grateful for all the work you’re doing, especially on college campuses where the need for both knowledge of the Gospel and the love of Jesus Christ is so great! We’re thankful that Our Lord is addressing the needs of His people by calling an impressive number of new vocations to the Dominican Order in recent years.

Ordained to the priesthood in 1966, Fr. Basil Cole has taught moral, spiritual, and dogmatic theology at the Dominican House of Studies since 1998. He has written extensively on moral theology and is the author of Christian Totality, a widely translated volume on religious life. How do your classes help form future priests? Sacred doctrine,

Thanks in no small part to your generosity, the Dominican House of Studies is bursting at the seams with friars in formation. To accommodate incoming student brothers, transitional deacons leave the House of Studies and continue their path to the priesthood at St. Dominic’s Priory, just south of the National Mall in Washington DC.
