Each  friar has  his  own  gift  which adds color to the service that the community of preachers offers to  the  people   of  Manaoag  and   the  pilgrims  who  come  every  day.   Some  of  them  are  more  directly  involved   in  the   management   of  the shrine.   Others  have  particular  responsibilities in the convent  and ministries to serve God’s people.

Collaborating with the friars are the Dominican Sisters who belong to the “Congregacion de Religiosas Misioneras de Santo Domingo.”  They too live in community inspired by  the  life  and  example  of  St.  Dominic.   They  serve  the  shrine  by  managing Colegio de San Juan de Letran – Manaoag,   through   which   the   Dominican   community   preaches   by  forming  the  youth  of Manaoag.   Together,   the

Dominican  Community  of  friars  and  sisters  takes  care  of the educational,  spiritual and sacramental needs of the faithful who come to the shrine.  The Sisters also manage schools in Dagupan and San Manuel.

As sons and daughters of St. Dominic, the Dominicans preach Christ mainly by living in common, in Obedience, Chastity and Poverty,  praying, studying and doing mission together.  Inspired by the life of St. Dominic, they preach the Word of God for the salvation of souls, by their way of life, as individuals and as a community.
