About Us

What are Lay Dominicans?

Lay Dominicans are “men and women, singles and couples living a Christian life with Dominican spirituality in the secular world. We find our inspiration following the same spiritual path taken by many saints, blesseds, and other holy men and women throughout the almost 800 year history of the Dominican order.”

You can find out much more about the Dominican Laity at the provincial website.
