I just wanted to include here the various updates that were sent out via our Provincial Office office. While it comes from our office of advancement and from our former provincial, Fr. Dominic Izzo OP, I think still provides a good perspective of some of the things happening in our province for men discerning a vocation with us. Let me know what you think of it!
July Monthly Missive (updates) for the Province of St. Joseph
I wanted also to direct you to our provincial website for an update on one of our Dominican bishops, Christopher Cardone OP, Bishop of Auki, Solomon Islands (S. Pacific) who has a nice update in the Catholic newspaper for the Diocese of Rockville Center on Long Island, NY where he grew up.
The photos in the album are when I was recently visiting Bishop Cardone with his family on Long Island just before he took off back to his diocese - an amazing Dominican!
+Interesting fact: in the photo album, you will see Bishop Chris' pectoral cross which is made from shark teeth (which serve as currency even today in the Solomon Islands) and are consider precious. Bishop Chris told me that when he made is Ad Limina visit to Rome with the Holy Father, he was admiring it very closely!
