Keeping the Fire Burning - Silent Retreat for Men Discerning

Happy Feast of the Holy Name of Jesus! (check out Bro. Thomas Davenport's post today on Dominicana)

Since there are a good number of you who still have some time to go before you would be able to enter the Dominicans, our plan is to organize a retreat (possibly two) for those of you in active discernment with us this summer here at the Dominican House of Studies.  

It will be a silent retreat (different from a Come & See vocation weekend) that would be led by our friars to help you learn more about the Order of Preachers and the Dominican spiritual life.  For some good resources in this area click here.
Can you all email me at vocations@dominicanfriars.org and let me know which months would be best for you? (i.e. June at the start or more towards the end of the summer)

(Also I would add we are planning retreat days for those of you in high school in Ohio this summer as well. So if you would like to be notified of when these will take place, you should email me)
