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.

In March this year, Cardinal Vincent Nichols appointed the Dominican Church in London to be the Rosary Shrine of Westminster archdiocese. This makes our church the first and only Rosary Shrine in England. Our church will now have a particular mission to promote the Rosary. St. Dominic’s has 14 side chapels, each dedicated to a mystery of the Rosary. The high altar is dedicated to the Fifth Glorious Mystery: the Crowning of Our Lady as Queen of Heaven.
