The Dominican friars engage in preaching missions across the Province, following in the footsteps of St. Dominic.
Western Dominican Preaching
Western Dominican Preaching has served throughout the western United States since the arrival of the Order of Preachers in the early 1850s. We offer parish missions, novenas, retreats, days of recollection, and catechesis for adults.
A mission lasts for six days and allows parishioners to come together for an intense period of prayer and reflection upon the Word of God. Novenas last for nine days, and are usually associated with a feast or particular need. Retreats and days of recollection vary in length. Adult Catechesis can last up to two weeks long, and is intended for those who have a sincere desire to grow in their faith through critical reflection and study of the Gospel message and the Church’s Tradition.
