1964 Dominican Vocations Film

Some of you may have seen this already, but I've only just discovered it. There are some fascinating shots of a Dominican Rite Mass and other beautiful scenes of conventual life. It was filmed at St Stephen's Priory, Dover, MA, the Dominican House of Studies, Washington, D.C., and St. Dominic's Church, Washington, D.C.

I wonder how many of the brothers who professed obedience until death kept their promise in the heady days of the 60s and 70s?

I found this video almost painful to view. It gave me a picture of Catholicism as I remembered it; a clear devotion to Christ and His Church and a searching for Truth. I lament the loss of this type of Catholicism and reminded me once again that only my unshakable belief that Christ founded the Catholic Church keeps me with Her.

Thank you very much for posting this link to our video. If you are ever in Washington, you'll see that are chapel has hardly changed from those days -- it's as beautiful now as then. We have also been blessed in our Province with a great surge in vocations -- we currently have the largest novitiate class we've had in about 30 years.

Our Dominican Studium is also doing quite well. We are in the process of expanding our facilities by adding a new wing to our Priory to house our academic center and library. (Donations are always welcome!)

If 'anonymous' wants to see a clear devotion to Christ and His Church and a searching for the truth, I strongly suggest he visit the website of our Dominican Studium here in Washington, DC: www.dhs.edu or our vocations blog: www.dominicanfriars.org.

Oremus pro invicem.

The narrator was Dana Elcar!
That's Pete Thornton from MacGyver. :D
