Who We Are
Dominican Friars of the Province of the Most Holy Name of Jesus
As members of the Order of Preachers, and faithful sons of the Roman Catholic Church,
we are called to proclaim the Gospel of Jesus Christ throughout the world, following the example of Saint Dominic.
Whether from the pulpit, online, or on the street, “the object of our preaching is either to cause the faith to be born, or to allow it to penetrate people’s entire lives…thus building the Body of Christ which is brought to perfection by the sacraments of faith.”
(Fundamental Constitutions of the Order of Preachers)
How We Serve
True to our tradition and history, a number of friars serve as itinerant preachers, traveling extensively in order to proclaim the Gospel. Other friars provide pastoral care at parishes and university Newman Centers, or are engaged in missionary work with the poor and marginalized. Many friars are involved in academic ministry, researching and teaching the richness of the Catholic intellectual tradition in colleges and seminaries around the world. Finally, there are those friars who serve in specialized ministries, touching every facet of human life.

“In the consecrated life, Christ’s faithful, moved by the Holy Spirit, propose to follow Christ more nearly, to give themselves to God who is loved above all and, pursuing the perfection of charity in the service of the Kingdom, to signify and proclaim in the Church the glory of the world to come” (CCC, 916).
