The Central Province was fortunate to receive a grant last year earmarked for a vocations video, entitled “Your Dominican Impact Starts Here.” For the past several months, we have worked with the Beverly Price Company to plan a shoot that will include filming in St. Louis and Chicago. The goal of the video is to encourage young men discerning a vocation to consider the Dominicans. In addition, the video aims to show potential donors how their support can have a Dominican Impact.
Shooting took place at St. Dominic Priory and the Aquinas Institute of Theology in St. Louis, MO, as well as the newly renovated Provincial Office in Chicago, IL. Interviewees discussed the history of the Order, their personal calling to the Dominicans, and the significance of their time spent in formation. The video will be released at the 2014 Central Province Assembly in January.
