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!).

  3. Hi do you know who i could contact in Duluth MN about becoming a Lay Dominican. I have been praying the Liturgy of the Hours since the age of 16. I go to daily mass and pray the rosary. I have had this in my heart for a very long time and would appreciate any guidance you could offer.
