The

Preaching Truth for the Salvation of Souls

Over the past 800 years, thousands of men have responded to 

the Lord's call to lay down their lives as Dominican Friars. 

 

St. Dominic founded the Order of Preachers in 1216 to preach the Gospel.

It is prayer, study and a passion for Truth

that gives us a love for the Church and the confident trust in God

to proclaim the Gospel with zeal, faithfulness & conviction.

Lord Jesus,

As once you called Saint Dominic to preach the Gospel, so now through the intercession of

Our Blessed Lady, Queen of the Most Holy Rosary, and Saint Joseph, Protector of the Church, we ask you to send new preachers into your harvest.

Give them the graces necessary to preach with wisdom and courage.

 

May they be faithful witnesses to your Life, Death, and Resurrection, bringing the light of the true faith into the darkness of people's lives. 

 

Through Christ Our Lord, Amen.

Preaching

We Dominicans centre our lives on preaching. We use every means possible to bring God's Word to humanity: the spoken word, written text, teaching, communications 

& social media.

The Pillars of Dominican Life

Preaching

Prayer

Prayer, centred on the reverent celebration of the Eucharistic Sacrifice & the Divine Office, nourishes our personal love for Jesus and drives us to speak about Him. Our Preaching in turn drives us back to prayer.  

Study

On-going study of Scripture for the sake of preaching is a key element in our personal holiness and in our mission. We also study our culture so that we may understand the issues people face and explore the openings for God's love.

Community

Jesus united His followers in His Body, forming them into a community in the Holy Spirit. Through our life in common we seek to embody the Kingdom of God, its love, peace, wisdom & joy, in our communities. 

 

With confidence in her protection, and inspired by her example, we seek to know, love and proclaim the world's Saviour. From her we accept the Rosary as a way of contemplating the mysteries of her Son and as a powerful means of preaching 

His Life, Death and Resurrection.

The Blessed Virgin Mary

Devotion to Mary has always been at the heart of the Dominican Order.  

If you think God might be calling you to share in this life & mission, then what are you waiting for?
