Come & See Vocation Weekends: Dominican Province of St. Joseph

Friday, August 22, 2014

NEXT VOCATION WEEKEND:  September 19-21, 2014  (2014 regional summer vocation events can be seen here; plan now to come visit us)

Contact the vocation director to reserve your space. In recent years our four annual vocation weekends have been full, so plan ahead for the September 19-21, 2014 weekend.  (other vocation weekends will be: Nov. 14-16, Feb. 13-15, Mar. 27-29)

No matter where you ultimately go to serve the Lord, a vocation weekend with the Dominicans is an excellent opportunity to learn more about religious life in general. These weekends are the fastest way to concretely learn a lot about the Order of Preachers (and our province) in a very short period of time.

CLICK: SCHEDULE FOR THE NEXT WEEKEND  (all our vocation weekends follow this general timetable, this is important to know when you make travel plans)

Over 100 men pass through on our vocation weekends annually, not to mention many others who visit informally or other times during the year. If one of the four vocation weekends this academic year will not work for your schedule, it is possible to visit us another time (preferably during the week and during the academic year) either here in DC or at another house or priory of our province.

*When making travel plans to visit us (after confirming w/ the director of vocations), plan for at least 45 minutes of travel time via the Metro to Reagan National (DCA), or at least 90 minutes of travel time to Baltimore-Washington International (BWI). Reagan National is most convenient & sometimes less expensive.  Since the District of Columbia and Northern Virginia area have inexpensive and efficient public transportation, it is especially convenient to arrive to the Dominican House of Studies using public transportation (arrive to Brookland/Catholic University Metro stop on the Red Line, exit left up the escalator, look off to the left for the bell tower of the National Shrine, we are across the street on Michigan Ave.)
