Do you have questions about faith and meaning?
In 2021, to mark the 800th anniversary of the Dominicans in Britain, a group of Friars followed in the footsteps of the original Friars and made the journey from the Kentish coast all the way to Oxford!
Founded in 1216 as the ‘Order of Preachers’, St Dominic’s Order has now spread throughout the world. Unlike monks, we are ‘itinerant preachers’, which means we live in different communities and travel to preach.
