ABOUT US

St. Albert the Great Priory is a community of religious priests and brothers of the Southern Dominican Province of St. Martin de Porres.  The Dominicans arrived in Irving, Texas in the late 1950’s to serve as chaplains and professors of theology and philosophy at the University of Dallas. In the early 1960’s, the friars also served on staff at Bishop Lynch High School.  The first Priory was built on the campus of the university in 1964. Later the community was relocated to its present site on the edge of the campus adjacent to Holy Trinity Seminary.

The Dominican friars continue to serve in the Dioceses of Dallas and Ft. Worth as well as around the world. They serve the university in both campus ministry and as professors in the Neuhoff School of Ministry. Over the years they have served as teachers, spiritual directors, retreat masters and in administration for Holy Trinity Seminary.  Several of the friars continue to assist the Seminary as spiritual directors.  The friars currently serve in parochial and Hispanic ministry, hospital and prison chaplaincies, as well as in Diaconal and Lay Minister Formation.  Their ministries include preaching missions and retreat work throughout the country and in both Africa and Latin America. The Prior, Fr. Jude Siciliano, writes a weekly on-line preaching resource called “Preacher Exchange” with over 9,000 followers that is used by priests and lay persons around the world to reflect on and spread God’s word (www. preacherexchange.com).   While not a parish, the Priory chapel is open to all Catholics in the area for the daily celebration of the Liturgy of the Hours and the Eucharist.

What makes the priory unique among the communities of the Southern Dominican Province, as well as other Catholic institutions in the area, is its designation as a house of formation. It is the only Dominican community in the province to welcome young men who are discerning their call to serve as friars.
