Five Friars to be Ordained to the Priesthood for Eastern Province Dominicans

Five of our friars will be ordained to the priesthood on May 25 at St. Dominic's Church, downtown Washington DC - you are invited.  Pictured here with the ordinandi, is their student master, Fr. Joseph Alobaidi OP (L) and Fr. Ken Letoile OP (R), the prior of the Dominican House of Studies.

O Lord Jesus Christ, great High Priest, we thank you for calling our Brothers, Jerome, Jordan, Augustine, Michael and Justin to Your holy priesthood. Lead them in Your unerring footsteps; so that they may become priests who are models of purity, possessors of wisdom and heroes of sacrifice. May they be steeped in humility and aflame with love for God and man. Make our brothers apostles of Your glory and great preachers of Truth for the salvation of souls.
