Will you join us in telling and preserving the history and life of the Dominican Family?

The National Dominican Oral History Archive Project, at the Mary Nona McGreal, OP, Center for Dominican Historical Studies at Dominican University, seeks to support the memory and study of the life of the Dominican family in the United States.

Recognizing the rich histories, broad spectrums of service experiences, and increasingly diverse settings of Dominican Friars, Nuns, Sisters, and Laity, it is important to hear individual women and men’s stories to gain a more complete understanding of Dominican religious life in the 20th and 21st centuries. In this endeavor, the National Dominican Oral History Project looks to capture the vocational life history of the Dominican family.

At the core of Dominican charism is study, and this project seeks to promote this central gift of Dominican life. Dominican archives across the country have collected oral histories of their members, but this project, through digitization, seeks to centralize this work into a single portal, that is accessible, searchable, and ready for future scholarship.

Please join us in our mission to preserve and tell the history and life of the Order of Preachers in the United States.

Please contact us for more information. Details on how to submit oral histories will be featured on this page soon.
