• 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 Gospel Reflection

Wednesday, May 25, 2016

Seating plans can be a headache. We had one recently for our Doorkeepers’ Dinner. The trouble with seating plans is that if there is a logic underlying the arrangement of people, inevitably someone will feel overlooked whereas others who may have been preferred can feel embarrassed about the honour they have received to the exclusion of someone else. It usually ends in some sense of awkwardness. Incidentally, about six months ago I was at a friend’s birthday where a table plan was displayed with nice little name cards. My friend proudly announced that  had placed people randomly, which seemed to me to defeat the point. I suspect that where he sat was not entirely random. Anyway, the point is that it matters to us as social creatures where we sit, and it was no different in Jesus’s day.
