Last year, the Dominican provinces of St. Albert the Great and Martin de Porres purchased the former Loretto Academy building in St. Louis. After some renovation, the building will become a priory for men in formation from both provinces. Built in 1908, the building is on the National Register of Historic Places. The St. Dominic Priory Building Project has its own web site, and the first tour of the priory is scheduled for Saturday, May 14. The priory is expected to be ready for occupancy this fall.
