About Us

We are lay members of the Dominican Order. This means we are common people, not ordained priests or religious brothers/sisters, but still follow the spiritual and intellectual traditions of the Dominican Order. In other words, we are laypeople who live out the values and spirituality of the Dominican Order in their daily family, work, and community lives.

The Four Pillars

Lay Dominicans, also known as Third Order Dominicans, live out their Christian vocation in the world while striving to grow in the four pillars of Dominican spirituality: prayer, study, community, and apostolate. These pillars serve as a guide for Lay Dominicans in their daily lives, as they seek to deepen their relationship with God and share the fruits of their faith with others.
