Who are we?
We are Catholic members of an international Order of Preachers (abbreviated as O.P.) often known as the Dominicans after our founder, Dominic Guzman. We were once commonly known as the Dominican Third Order.

We are spread throughout the world.
(Take a video tour.)
Our central province, U.S.A., is a geographic area with members meeting in Minnesota, Illinois, Michigan, Iowa, Kansas, Wisconsin, Missouri, Indiana, Colorado and New Mexico under the auspices of the friars of the Central Province.
We also have members who are not close to a meeting place but are in contact on an ongoing basis. This site is one of many ways we keep in contact.
We wear no distinctive clothing or uniform. The clothing depicted above is the traditional garb of the friars.
We welcome inquiries and visitors.
