On August 15, 2023, on the Solemnity of the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary, 12 Dominican friars professed simple, or first, vows at St. Gertrude’s parish in Cincinnati, OH.

In 1194 Dominic was ordained to the priesthood, receiving the Holy Spirit to become a disciple of Christ and to go out into the world, preach the Gospel, and teach all nations.

The longing that filled the hearts of twelve men, which brought them to their knees on the altar steps of St. Gertrude’s. They have been changed by that glimpse of the glory of the only Son of God. What else to do? They consecrate their lives. They train their eyes to see Jesus, and him only.
