National Vocations Awareness Week
New president at Dominican School
Rev. Peter Rogers, OP, was installed as president of the Dominican School of Philosophy and Theology Sept. 30 at St. Mary Magdalen Church in Berkeley. Bishop Michael C. Barber, SJ, presided. "Our mission is to prepare women and men for academic and apostolic vocations," Father Rogers said in his homily. "This is following what Jesus says in that first line of the Gospel today: 'I am the truth and the way and the life.' My mission is to work with our DSPT community to bring more lay men and women to the DSPT and prepare them to work in the ministry of the church, which really is the ministry of our Lord Jesus Christ, and to gain wisdom of philosophy and theology to be able to bring more people to the truth discovered by human reason and revealed through the Gospel, so that more people throughout the world may walk the way of Jesus and live the life of holiness that is Jesus himself."
