Vocation Weekends & Events


Our vocation weekends at the Dominican House of Studies in Washington, DC offer an opportunity for young men who are seriously interested in the Dominican Order to experience life in one of our communities. The goal of the weekend is to allow you to step into our life to get a first-hand experience of what it is like to be a Dominican friar.

Your time at the Dominican House of Studies will give you the chance to enter into the daily schedule and rhythm of a Dominican priory,  to grow in your knowledge of the history and tradition of St. Dominic and the Order of Preachers, opportunities to meet and talk with the friars, both priests and student brothers, and the time to grow closer to our Lord in the Mass, the Divine Office, and adoration.

Space is limited. If interested, contact
Fr. Mario Calabrese, O.P., Director of Vocations.
