The order of preachers
Welcome! The Dominican Friars are a religious order of priests and brothers in the Catholic Church. For 800 years, since 1216, we have been called to preach the Gospel of Jesus Christ for the salvation of souls.
This is the website for an area of our international Order called the Province of England. This administrative area currently includes England, Wales and Scotland, plus our mission in Grenada, WI.
As we specialise in preaching, we have an online apostolate that offers weekly homilies by our friars which can be accessed through this site: Torch.
