“The mission of the Order of Preachers, also called the Dominican Order, is to share with others the truth about the God whom we contemplate in our hearts.” (excerpt from www.op.org on the charism of the Dominican Order)
The priests, brothers and sisters who make up the Dominican Order are members of a vital religious community called to preach the Gospel of Jesus Christ.

We gather together as a community of believers to worship God, to celebrate the Eucharist, to listen to glorious music, and enjoy the fellowship of each other in Christ.
As a community of believers we come together in a spirit of faithful and reverent worship enjoying each other’s presence in our lives. Together and individually we feel the power of God in our lives and are inspired to spread Christ’s Gospel and to serve our community in love and humility.
