Pastoral Care

  • 6 parishes or public chapels are provided by the Friars, serving London, Oxford, Cambridge, Leicester, Newcastle, and Edinburgh.
  • Students at 8 UK universities benefit from our chaplaincy work, developing an adult faith to sustain their future life.
  • The spiritual needs of the vulnerable are served in 3 UK prisons and 3 hospitals.
  • Friars from all 6 of our UK houses provide much-needed cover for diocesan clergy.
  • Our priory in Grenada, supported by fundraising in UK diocesan parishes, serves the people of the Caribbean.

Community

  • Our tradition of community means that we take time to socialise with the people we serve, getting to know them as individuals, regardless of background – often building connections which last a lifetime.

Faith and Reason

  • Publishing books, public talks, lectures and debates – the friars have a considerable output, promoting an intelligent engagement with the Catholic faith at all levels.
  • Online apostolate: we use this website as a way to bring our preaching to all parts of the world.
  • Through the Las Casas Institute, we promote critical reflection on questions of human dignity in the light of Catholic social teaching and theology.

Education and Training

  • Blackfriars Hall, a Permanent Private Hall within Oxford University, is run by the friars. It brings excellence in teaching and research, on Catholic theology and philosophy, into the heart of this renowned university.
  • Blackfriars also acts as an international study centre, teaching priests and religious sisters and brothers from both the Dominican Order and other orders.
