Site dedication
St Dominic founded his Order of Preachers in 1216, to respond to a desperate need for sound, orthodox preaching in the face of a fatally confused notion of God, of Christ and his Church.  His vision grew as he saw the need for sound preaching for the whole Church in every age.  St Dominic's age was not unlike our own - one in need of a new evangelisation with so many baptised Catholics so far from their faith.  The Friars Preachers were to be modern apostles, sent out to the rest of the world to preach the truth of the one God who revealed himself in the Lord Jesus, the Word made flesh.

The Dominican friars of Australia and New Zealand invite you to share with us the vision of St Dominic, and the contemporary living out of that vision.  We ask you to consider the Dominicans as you seek to respond to God's call in your life.  We offer you the opportunity to live a joyful life in the service of the Gospel of Jesus Christ, praising his name, blessing his people, and boldly preaching his word.  The spring-time of the Church needs courageous apostles!
