Solemnity of Saint Joseph, Spouse of the Blessed Virgin Mary

We seem to know Joseph so well, yet he plays a bit part in the drama that is the conception, birth, and childhood of Jesus Christ, recounted partly in the readings of today. He is barely noticeable in the narrative. … Continue reading

Fifth Sunday of Lent

What were those Greeks looking for when they were seeking out Jesus? It’s hard to say. First, we don’t know what they were hoping to find in Jerusalem during the Passover.  Chances are they didn’t know either.  Perhaps these spiritual … Continue reading

Meet the Friars

  • Br. Greg Dunn, O.P.

    Brother Greg is from Fort Worth, Texas, and is one of three children in the Dunn Family. He graduated from Texas A&M University in the spring of 2016 before entering the Dominicans. In college, he found great encouragement in the witness of many fellow students and priests at St. Mary’s Catholic Center who followed Christ with their whole hearts. He was drawn to the Order of Preachers because of the Dominicans he met along the way pray with faith, live in community, study God’s Word, and preach authentically.

    He enjoys hiking, baseball, and playing other pick-up sports. If you would like to learn some Fightin’ Texas Aggie Yells, feel free to ask him. Also, with a great bit of perseverance, he is a lifelong Chicago Cubs fan.

  • The Center for Catholic Life at Tulane University

    Beginning in the 1930s the Catholic Center at Tulane has developed into a vibrant center for Catholic life on campus served by the Dominican friars. As Tulane University seeks to form students not only for success in their professions but also for service to their local community, the Catholic Center provides an indispensable spiritual dimension. Spiritual formation is not just about devotion, but a solid foundation of intellectual and moral values from which one thinks, chooses and acts in the world as a human being with integrity. The Center for Catholic Life provides opportunities to learn through lectures, classes and personal study, to serve through community programs and a mission to Honduras, to pray through liturgy and prayer groups, and to grow through fellowship, dialogue, Reconciliation and spiritual direction.  Through their involvement at the Catholic Center, Tulane students have a space to integrate all they learn and become saints for the Church and the world.
