Welcome

“Follow me, and I will make you fishers of men.”

Welcome to the vocations website for the Province of the Most Holy Name of Jesus. This website provides information about the Dominican Order as you discern the manner of life that will lead you to the holiness that God desires for you. Just as our Lord called our Holy Father Saint Dominic and the Holy Apostles Peter and Andrew, He is also calling you to a deep and abiding discipleship. Since the Order’s beginnings in 1216, thousands of men have responded to the Lord’s call by serving Him as a son of Saint Dominic. Today, nearly 6,000 Dominican friars worldwide strive to do the same.  We ask you to join us in our preaching mission for the salvation of souls. 

If the thought of serving the Lord  as a consecrated religious brother or priest has crossed your mind, you are in the right place.

Please do not hesitate to contact the Vocation Director, Father Steven Maekawa, O.P., with any questions about discerning a vocation to the religious life and the priesthood. It is his ministry to help you to discover whether the Lord is calling you to be a Dominican preacher. May God grant you an abundance of grace as you discern. You are in our prayers!
