Pray for Vocations
moved by the urgent need of Priests, Religious and apostles, and following Thy recommendation to pray the Lord of the harvest to send laborers to work for the salvation of souls, we implore Thee, through the intercession of Thy most Holy Mother Mary, Virgin Immaculate and Queen of the Most Holy Rosary, and also through the intercession of Dominic, the Holy Patriarch, to increase the number of friars preachers.
Obtain for Thy Order faithful followers of its religious traditions; numerous apostles after the heart of their Blessed Father Dominic, holy and zealous for the salvation of souls.
Another Prayer for Dominican Vocations
Lord Jesus, as you once called Saint Dominic to preach the Gospel, so now send new preachers into your harvest. Give them courage, wisdom and grace to make them witnesses of your death, resurrection and return in glory. Through the intercession of Mary, patroness of the Order, may they bring true faith and light to brighten the darkness.
You who live forever.

General donations will be directed to our most immediate needs. This enables the Dominican leadership to prudently apply your gift within the entire mission of the Western Dominican Province: supporting our varied ministries, providing for our elderly and infirm, educating our young Dominican friars preparing for sacramental and non-sacramental ministry.
Rosary Sunday Student Formation Appeal
This appeal helps to directly fund our student brothers in their Dominican intellectual, spiritual, and ministerial formation. Their education includes exposure to other cultures and immersion in other languages so as to be prepared to serve well the Church in the Western United States and the world.
A tribute gift allows an individual the opportunity to show appreciation for someone special. Sometimes it just seems right to make a donation in honor of someone who has had a positive influence in ones life, or maybe on behalf of a loved one. Tribute gifts are used for the most immediate needs of the Province.
"Donations to the annual Ordination Appeal provide for the education and formation of our Dominican Priests and Brothers, often the only source for special programs designed to help our friars effectively minister in a diverse apostolic environment."
