Bro. Gerard Rosario DeAngelis, O.P.

Brother Gerard Rosario grew up in Port Washington, New York and was baptized at St. Peter of Alcantara Parish. Growing up he did not practice the Faith, but at the Marianist High School Kellenberg Memorial he first encountered the joy, beauty, and—most importantly—truth of the Gospel. After high school, he attended Boston College where he majored in Business Management and Philosophy. His first interest in the Dominicans did not come from an extended exposure to the friars but rather through varied and small ways God placed them in his life: studying St. Thomas Aquinas to defend the faith, attending Dominican rite Masses at St. Agnes in New York City, hearing the music of the Hillbilly Thomists. “Growing up not practicing the Faith, I know in my guts how much of a difference the Gospel makes. If it is true, literally nothing else matters. This is a great time to be a Dominican because it is a grace of our order to show the rationality and truth of the faith to those most skeptical of it.”
