VISITING THE FRIARS
The Dominicans are blessed in that there are many books, articles, histories, and even movies made about us. Yet, these things will only give you a hypothetical picture of a Dominican. Ultimately, there is no substitute for having an actual physical encounter with a Dominican community. Our houses vary in size, from 4-5 to 30+, but they all contain the same elements that make us an order. By meeting a friar and hearing how he lives, you will gain a greater insight into what our charism is all about. Every one of our houses is open to receiving guests for prayer, meals, and Mass. Even if there aren’t Dominicans in your immediate area, you can schedule a visit to one of our many houses.
