The vocations blog for the Dominican Province of St. Joseph is afire these days, and not only with vocation news.

Recent talks at the Dominican House of Studies in Washington, DC, are also being posted. New additions are:This last was the first in a new series of talks to be presented at the House of Studies called, "In the Image of God, the Human Condition Today." I've seen the list of talks (though I can't find a copy online), and it's going to be a great series.

Coming up:
  • October 31: The Vigil of All Saints. Readings, Night Prayer, Reliquary Procession, the Litany of the Saints, with a reception and the opportunity for confession. Starts at 7:00 p.m., but if you go, arrive early or plan on standing
  • November 11: Solemn Profession of four brothers: Joseph Pius Pietrzyk, OP; Kevin Hugh Vincent Dyer, OP; Slavador John Martin Ruiz-Mayorga, OP; and John Gregory Schnakenberg, OP.
  • November 12: St. Albert the Great Lecture. Dr. Maiju Lehmijoki-Gardner of the University of Helsinki, will talk on "Practical Mystics -- Catherine of Siena and Her Circle of Dominican Lay Women"
In other good Dominican news, six novices recently entered the Collaborative Dominican Novitiate, which helps form members of a number of Congregations of Dominican Sisters.

Update: Another video post on the Vocations website: Brother Dominic Legge, OP, on his vocation, the Order, the Eucharist, Mary, and more.
