When one thinks of contemplative nuns – women living a hidden life of prayer – hardly ever does anyone think of Dominican nuns. It is, rather, Carmelites, Poor Clares, or Trappistines that come to mind. In fact, most people are not aware that Dominican nuns even exist. And this even at the highest level of Church authority! Very often when questionnaires/bulletins are sent out from the Sacred Congregation for Religious, we Dominican nuns are overlooked.
On the third weekend of February, we Dominican Friars at St. Dominic Priory hosted more than 30 men discerning religious life for a vocations weekend. The weekend gave me some reminders about our life; here are a few thoughts.

The Dominican Friars living at St. Dominic Priory in St. Louis, MO are members of both the Central U.S. Province and the Southern U.S. Province. Our student friars go through their formation together at the St. Louis Studium, otherwise known as the House of Studies.
