There will be an opportunity to meet and have lunch with Director of Vocations, Fr. Benedict Croell OP, please RSVP: firstname.lastname@example.org
Join our friars, the parish of St. Gertrude, our novices and their families for an extraordinary opportunity for our Mass of Simple Profession on the Solemnity of the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary. Starts at 11:30AM in St. Gertrude Church, 7630 Shawnee Run Rd., Madeira OH, 45243.
The novitiate of the Dominican Province of St. Joseph is located at St. Gertrude Priory in Madeira, OH. It is the house of formation for the men who have just entered the province and it is a time of continued discernment in preparation for profession of first vows. The novitiate year begins during first vespers of the Feast of our Holy Father St. Dominic when the postulants are vested in the habit of the Dominican friar and ends during the Mass of simple profession a year and a week later.
