A message from the Chaplain, Fr. Joseph Paul Albin

It is with a sad, yet hopeful heart, that I must announce that Fr. Don Dvorak, OP, passed away on May 18, 2022.

Fr. Don served as chaplain of the University from 2010-2017 and continued his priestly duties at the Church of the Incarnation until his death. 

Please keep Fr. Don, the Dominican community, and his many friends and family in your prayers. 

Eternal rest grant unto him Lord, and may the perpetual light shine upon him. 

May he and all the faithful departed rest in peace. 

In lieu of flowers donations may be made to:

Dominican Fathers

The University of Dallas is in its 65th academic year. Since opening its doors in September 1956 with 96 students, the University has grown to over 3,000 students at the undergraduate and graduate levels. The original chapel, named in honor of St. Thomas Aquinas, was located on the west side of campus and was used for daily Mass and private prayer until the opening of the Chapel of the Incarnation on March 24, 1985.

On August 15, 2001 the Diocese of Dallas changed the status of Chapel of the Incarnation to the Church of the Incarnation. This title indicates and emphasizes the church's special status as a faith community that is centered not in a geographical setting, but rather on a university campus. The church has as its primary responsibility to serve the spiritual needs of the students, faculty, staff, and alumni of the university and welcomes others to participate in worship here. 

As a Catholic faith community, it stands in a position of openness and hospitality to all who desire to worship here.

In 2014, the American Institute of Architects Dallas Chapter awarded the Church of the Incarnation the 2014 AIA Dallas Twenty-Five Year Award.  This award, the highest award bestowed by AIA Dallas, is given annually to an enduring post-war architectural work that is at least 25 years old.
