Who is a Dominican?
The Order of Preachers
The Order of Preachers was established 800 years ago by St. Dominic “for preaching and the salvation of souls.” Following the Rule of St. Augustine and the Constitutions of the Order of Preachers, Dominican friars commit themselves to study, prayer, and preaching in order to be effective instruments of Jesus Christ’s saving mission.
What is a vocation?
A call from Jesus Christ
A vocation is a call from Jesus Christ to follow him in a particular way. Each Christian has a vocation to holiness, but the Lord calls some to follow him in consecrated life and the priesthood. Consecrated through the religious vows, Dominican friars seek to glorify God, to strive for personal sanctification, and to work for the salvation of mankind
