• Jubilee - 800 years!

    Join us in celebrating eight centuries of the Order of Preachers.

    From its first foundation by St Dominic, the Holy Spirit has blessed the Order with 103 saints and 374 blesseds. This year we reflect on our rich heritage and plan for our future mission.

  • Torch: Inspiring preaching each week from the Dominican Friars

    "Did not our hearts burn within us while he talked to us on the road, while he opened to us the scriptures?"

    Find sermons for this week and the whole liturgical year.

  • Explore the world from the Dominican perspective

    Our student brothers, training for the priesthood, present regular reflections on the doctrines and devotions of the Catholic Church, as well as on daily life.

    In their blog, Godzdogz, you will find ample food for thought!

  • Who are the Dominicans?

    The Order of Preachers includes friars, sisters and laypeople.

    Our 800-year heritage includes a distinctive spirituality and intellectual life, a democratic form of governance, and some of the greatest saints in the Catholic Church.  

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.

Wednesday, September 28, 2016

Things Jesus never said: ‘Finish up what you’re doing, and, when it’s more convenient for you, follow me!’ No, the time is now and nothing is to be preferred to following Christ at this very moment: neither goodbyes, nor the burying of the dead. Read more

Prayer Vigil at the new Rosary Shrine in London

Monday, September 19, 2016

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.
