I’m a Lay Dominican in the chapter of St. Catherine of Siena at St. patrick Parish in Columbus, OH. Our chapter is part of Region VI, Province of St. Joseph in the countrywide organization of the Dominican laity.
There are four pillars of Lay Dominican life: prayer, study, apostolate and community.
How do I become a lay Dominican? There are many Dominican provinces in the U.S., so do a search for Dominican province and then your state or nation, if you are outside the U.S. We are all over the world!
Once you’ve found a chapter, contact their president, a council member or their director of formation, or attend a meeting. Then the process can begin!
Some of the things we do: Lauds and Vespers (AM and PM prayer, at least); Daily Mass when possible; daily recitation of the Rosary (it’s our prayer, after all!).
15 Tuesdays (before August 8)
Novena to St. Dominic (begins July 31)
