According to the Rule of Blessed Augustine and the Constitutions of the Friars Preachers

The blog of the Church of St. Vincent Ferrer (in New York City) has posted a video of the Mass of Final Profession of four brothers of the Dominican Province of St. Joseph -- Br. James Brent, OP; Br. Hyacinth Cordell, OP; Br. John Chrysostom Kozlowski, OP; and Br. Ignatius Schweitzer, OP. (The rite of profession begins about 46 minutes in, and the vows themselves are sworn starting at about 57 minutes.)

The Mass was held on November 8 in the chapel of the Dominican House of Studies in Washington, DC. The presider and homilist was Fr. Dominic Izzo, OP, prior provincial.

If you've ever wondered what the Eastern Province friars are all about, this is a great place to start finding out.
