New Dominican novices at St. Gertrude’s (Madiera, OH), before receiving their habits on the Feast of St. Dominic.

Every year of the Feast of St. Dominic, a new class of novices receives their Dominican habits in a private ceremony at St. Gertrude Church and Priory (Madeira, OH), where they will spend a year living the life of Dominican brothers, and discerning their call to the Order of Preachers. This photo from Aug. 8 shows the men before vesting.
