The Province of St. Joseph is part of the Order of Preachers, a worldwide order of friars dedicated to preaching Jesus Christ. One of four Dominican provinces in the United States of America, the St. Joseph or Eastern Province extends from New England to Virginia to Ohio. The friars of the province serve in a variety of ministries throughout this region, undertake missionary work in Eastern Africa, and serve when called throughout the world.
Empowered by the Holy Spirit, our mission is exercised for the salvation of souls and extends to all of God’s people through these primary ministries: preaching, teaching, and serving. See how we live this mission.
In every age of challenge, the Lord has never abandoned His Church. St. Dominic’s mission, to preach the Gospel for the salvation of souls, is just as urgent today as it was 800 years ago. Is the Lord calling you to join this mission?
Dominicans are called to contemplate, and share the fruits of their contemplation with others. Your financial assistance helps us to prepare a new generation of preachers and sustain the friars who have spent their lives in service to the Church.
On this episode of the Word to Life Podcast, Fr. John Maria Devaney, O.P., is joined by Fr. Jose Diaz, a priest of the Archdiocese of Brooklyn. Our hosts discuss the importance of baptism and how it deepens our union with God.
