SVS Mission Statement
A Culture of Vocations
Why Support Dominican Vocations?
- Our expertise is preaching. The Church needs not only more priests and brothers, but priests and brothers who are effective and credible preachers to Catholics and the increasing number who are unchurched.
- We are highly trained theologians. An increasingly educated and sophisticated laity is hungry for the authentic teaching of the Catholic faith and the way that tradition touches the contemporary world (including the current demands of justice).
- We are drawing a whole new generation of young vocations. As an 800-year old religious order with an unbroken tradition, our communal life and mission of preaching and teaching is captivating a record number of young people with a strong retention rate.
- We are uniquely positioned to nurture and form the next generation of effective preachers and teachers at a critical moment in the Church’s history.
