Our current visiting priest at the Monastery for the weekend is Father Carmen Mele, OP, of our Southern Province. The last and only other time he came to visit was about 20 years ago. So it\’s really wonderful to have him with us.
Father is originally from Chicago IL and met the Dominicans when he went to study at Providence College in Providence RI. After graduating, he joined the Eastern Province of Dominicans. When our Southern Province in 1979 was founded he took the plunge and joined us. He has ministered in Texas for many years, and is currently teaching Moral Theology at Aquinas Institute of Theology in St. Louis MO.
Thank you Father Carmen for volunteering to be with us.
We love your homilies.
