Each summer the Dominican Healthcare Ministry hosts seminarians for our Ministry Internship Program, offering formation and training for seminarians in the pastoral care of the sick. Interns participate in our work caring for the sick by visiting patients, praying with them, and bringing Holy Communion. We also give classroom instruction in priestly care for the sick, and arrange meetings and interviews with a variety of medical professionals. And last but not least, they will be present at St. Catherine’s church to pray and preach at our weekly Thursday Healthcare Holy Hours.

This summer we have four Dominican student brothers studying for the priesthood, and for the first time since the covid pandemic are able to offer our full summer program.

Please pray for the seminarians as they care for the sick, and as they prepare to receive the priesthood of Jesus Christ, the Divine Physician. And if you see our student brothers at St. Catherine’s or the hospitals we serve, please give them a warm welcome!
