Saints in the Way of St. Dominic

In our aspirancy guidelines to assist you to prepare yourself to possibly enter novitiate, we recommend that you get to know our older brothers and sisters who walked in the way of our holy father St. Dominic. These are only some of the many blesseds and saints of the 800 year tradition of the Dominicans. Ask their intercession together with the Queen of all the Saints, the Blessed Virgin Mary, and entrust your vocation to her to protect it and nurture it through deeper prayer and God's grace.
