About Preaching Friars

Preachingfriars.org is a collaborative effort of the Dominican Student Brothers of St. Dominic Priory in St. Louis, MO. The studium comprises members of the Province of St. Martin de Porres (Southern) and the Province of St. Albert the Great (Central). As a community of both clerical and lay students, we study for the priesthood and future ministry at the Aquinas Institute of Theology. Begun in the fall of 2010 as a way to promote the weekly Vespers preaching of the friars, the site expanded to include reflections, video, and theological discourses.
