About Southern Dominican Province, USA
On December 8, 1979, as a response to the rapidly-growing Catholic population in the Southern United States, the Order of Friars Preachers (Dominican priests and brothers) approved the foundation of a new Dominican Province – the Province of Saint Martin de Porres. The geographic boundaries of the province cover eleven states: Texas, Oklahoma, Arkansas, Louisiana, Mississippi, Tennessee, Alabama, Florida, Georgia, South Carolina, and North Carolina.
Since the foundation of the Province of St. Martin de Porres, the Catholic Church in the South has experienced unprecedented growth, and with that growth an ever-increasing need for priests and brothers. The Dominicans of the Province of St. Martin de Porres stand uniquely poised and ready to minister to this Catholic population. Our Province has been blessed with many priest and brother vocations representing the breadth of the Catholic population in the South. In the relatively few years since our foundation, the Province has grown into a joyful preaching and teaching community, ready and able to preach the Gospel of Jesus Christ in whatever manner or place necessary.
