Provincial Dinner 2017
Because preaching is the heartbeat of our ministerial lives, at this year’s Provincial’s Dinner we will honor two brilliant preachers with the Dominican Central Province Great Preacher Award. Each exemplifies everything we hold in high esteem about our preaching charism. Our thanks to Sr. Donna Markham, O.P., Ph. D., and Msgr. Kenneth Velo for accepting this award and for the witness of their preaching.
From our beginning in 1216 and with Dominic’s insistence, we have relied upon the generosity of others to carry on our preaching mission. The Provincial’s Dinner reflects that challenge. Our Denver Novitiate, St. Dominic Priory in St. Louis, and the Aquinas Institute of Theology, also in St. Louis, represent the formative stages of Dominican life, an annual investment by the Province often near $1 million. Proceeds from the evening and from our sponsors assist the Province as we form young men willing to join their lives to ours, all in service of the Holy Preaching.
Again, please join us!
