Spiritual Life

The structure of student life here echoes the structure of Dominican life in the Order – the co-responsibility of all for a common project (RFG, n. 20). Undertaken as an act of mercy for the salvation of souls (Acts of the General Chapter 2001, n. 45), study is its own prayer. Mingled with contemplation, our study guides us in bringing their fruits to others. Our goal is to help students develop good personal habits for integrating faith and prayer into study and public discourse. The regular prayer life of a Dominican community focuses on two hinges: daily Mass and the Liturgy of the Hours.

Evening Prayer

T from 11:00 am to 12:00 pm                                           

Spiritual Direction

We are here to help all of our students, lay or religious, discern their vocation and gear their academics toward fulfilling the work that was intended for them. Students preparing for ministry work are expected, in keeping with their individual ecclesial traditions, to deepen their life of prayer, justice and charity so that their study and future ministry may be alive with the Spirit. We are eager to help both lay and religious students in all aspects of their preparation for ministry. Contact Fr. Christopher Renz, OP, Academic Dean, for help finding a spiritual director.
