12 Men Profess First Vows


But Jesus came and touched them, saying, ‘Rise, and have no fear.’ And when they
lifted up their eyes, they saw no one but Jesus alone.
—Matthew 17:7-8

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. These first vows follow a year of novitiate, then, having entered into vows, the friars embark on a life of intellectual and spiritual formation at the Dominican House of Studies in Washington, D.C.

Please pray for these 12 men as they enter more deeply into Dominican life!

Until December 31, your most generous offering in support of our young friars in training will be matched dollar-for-dollar by an anonymous benefactor, up to $350,000!
