Province of St. Albert the Great, USA

Our Vision

Our Mission is Preaching the Gospel of Jesus Christ

We preach in a wide variety of settings: in diocesan offices, in parishes, on college campuses, in schools, in hospitals, through the arts, in the missions, among the poor, on the road, on the internet, and in various other specialized fields.

We are part of the Order of Preachers, a religious order within the Roman Catholic Church. We are also called the Dominicans. Our provincial office is located in Chicago, Illinois, and we work primarily in the Midwest region of the United States of America, though our work extends throughout the world.

Mission Statement of the Province

The Dominican Friars of the Province of Saint Albert the Great communicate the word of God through preaching, theological education and the promotion of justice and peace. This mission in the body of Christ demands a vowed community life, liturgical prayer and life-long study.
