Feast of St. Dominic
August 8, 2017

Dominic de Guzman, born in Caleruega, Spain, founded the Order of Preachers (Dominicans) today numbering some 6,000 religious.  The Order of Preachers follows the Augustinian Rule, fraternal form of community life devoted to contemplation, study and preaching.  He died August 6 1221.

The papal bulls approving the Order of Preachers were issued by Pope Honorius III in 1218.

 We extend our prayerful best wishes to our Dominican Sisters and Brothers throughout with world.
