St. Albert the Great Priory & Novitiate is a formation community of Catholic priests and brothers in Irving, Texas.


St. Albert the Great Priory & Novitiate is a community of Catholic priests and brothers. While not a parish, the Priory chapel is open to all Catholics in the area for the daily celebration of Mass and the Liturgy of the Hours. In this community, young men live out their first year as a Dominican friar as they discern their vocation as a Dominican priest or brother. Your donations help us form young men into your future priests and brothers. Thank you for your partnership and prayers for this vital mission.

This year we will have a class of seven novices, our largest class in 15 years! The chapel and kitchen at the priory are 20 years old and they are showing their age. In order to help form these men, we need to update these spaces. Thank you for your help and please visit us!


In the last several years we have seen a resurgence of vocations and our most pressing need is to update our kitchen to accommodate the growing number of friars. Our kitchen cabinets, appliances, and surfaces can no longer keep up with our community's needs.

A new double stove to fit our needs is roughly $3500.

New kitchen cabinets will cost about $6000.

New countertops will cost us about $5000.

To fund a renovation of the kitchen we will need at least $10,000.

The new floor for the Chapel is about $100 a square foot.

Choir stalls will be about $2500 each.

With seven novices in the house, a lot of our expenses have gone up. It costs more than $1000/month to support each novice. If you'd like to give a gift to support our novices - that too would be amazing!
