Lay Dominicans

The Dominicans are a religious order within the Roman Catholic Church, gathered as a worldwide Family of Preachers by the special mission of our founder Saint Dominic (+1221).

Our common vocation is lived out in a variety of states of life: friars, sisters and many different groups of lay people.
As Lay Dominicans we share in the spirit and charism of Saint Dominic and his apostolic mission by study, prayer, community and preaching.

There are many ways of preaching and praying the gospel of Jesus Christ, which are practised by the Dominican lay people such as: silent prayer, liturgical prayer, rosary or while travelling. Studying the Holy Scripture and other religious texts and being there for others are also forms of preaching and praying.

On this website European Lay Dominicans share their experiences of praying and preaching in their work environment, with family and friends, in the parish or local community. And they share information with each other and with the Dominican Order.
