    It's one whole year of intense retreat with the Lord to discern one's vocation
  • 2 After the Novitiate, one makes a religious profession of Simple Vows

Please, support the Dominican Vocations
Some go to the missions by actually going, while others go by supporting the missions
The Society for Vocation Support came to birth in 1982 as an arm of the St. Jude Apostolate for the Dominican Province of St. Joseph the Worker (Nigeria and Ghana). The primary purpose of this society is to solicit for financial assistance for the formation (training) of our Dominican Students to the priesthood and religious life. This society has a fund-raising organizing committee that is formed and inaugurated annually for this purpose. Over the years, members of this group have made enormous sacrifice not only by their own personal donations but also by trying to reach out to men and women of good-will, like all of you present here today and many more who are not here, to explain our financial predicaments to them and getting them to help us. We are very grateful to them and to you too.
 
 

The Society for Vocation Support
What is it all about?
By Rev. Fr. Steve Ogbe, OP

I have come to realize that many people who support us and consciously go the extra-mile in identifying with the mission entrusted to us by Christ through our Blessed Father St. Dominic, do not have sufficient knowledge of who we are (as Dominicans) and what our mission, especially in relation to SVS, entails. It is in this light that I undertake to write and share the following with you.
