On this Feast of Our Lady of the Rosary, you will notice the new website for the Province of St. Joseph. Fr. Gabriel Gillen OP also shows what is possible when you have an IPad! Please say a prayer for our friars' efforts on the world wide web and Kindly Light Media. There is new content being posted each day. The basic information about vocations will continue to be posted on this new site and new stories of interest on the "Dominican Daily" (scroll down to bottom of website & enter your email).
Also just to let you know, my blog here will continue to have different content and be more directed to those who are actively discerning a vocation to Dominicans. Both our Provincial website (www.DominicanFriars.org) and this blog BOTH would be important to follow and will help you to learn more about the Order of Preachers.
Please say a prayer also for our efforts on the vocations front!
