For twenty-one years, the “Fanjeaux Seminar” has introduced American faculty members, staff, and students from different Dominican institutions of higher education to medieval history and the heritage of St. Dominic and the Dominican Order. In 2017, there were 36 participants from eleven institutions. The 17-day pilgrimage includes separate morning classes for students and for faculty/staff (this year led by Priscilla Woods, OP and Brian Walker, OP) and afternoon excursions for all to heritage sites (such as the cities of Toulouse and Albi, the monastery of Lagrasse, and the mountain of Monsegur and, of course, the village of Fanjeaux and the monastery of the nuns at Prouille).
July 5, 2017, Adrian, Michigan – Some 92 students from 24 Dominican high schools spent June 23-28 exploring their Dominican heritage and learning that the call of the Order of Preachers is to preach through their lives.
A collaboration of congregations of Dominican Sisters as well as the Dominican Friars, the 19th Annual Dominican High Schools Preaching Conference was hosted at Siena Heights University and the Motherhouse of the Dominican Sisters of Adrian. Students and their adult mentors came from California, New York, New Jersey, Ohio, Texas, Illinois, Wisconsin, Tennessee, Puerto Rico, and, for the first time, Australia to gather with their peers and form a community of young Dominican preachers.
