Many friars also provide pastoral care to thousands of people at the parishes we staff, and engage college and graduate students at our university Newman Centers. Some friars are involved in academic ministry, teaching the richness of the Catholic intellectual tradition at the Dominican School of Philosophy and Theology in Berkeley, the Pontifical University of Saint Thomas Aquinas in Rome, and various seminaries and universities throughout the United States; while others are involved in missionary work to the poor and marginalized throughout the world, as well as a number of other ministries.
