Lay Dominicans

About Us

Members of the Fraternities of St. Dominic are lay men and women who are fully incorporated members of the Order of Preachers and live out their Dominican vocation in the world. Through the Four Pillars of prayer, study, community, and apostolate we work to preach the Gospel and grow in personal holiness. You can learn more about the Lay Dominican life here:

  1. Participating in daily Mass;
  2. Daily praying some portions of the Liturgy of the Hours, with a minimum component of Morning and Evening Prayer;
  3. Daily recitation of the Rosary;
  4. Daily reading and reflecting on Sacred Scripture;
  5. Monthly reception of the Sacrament of Reconciliation
