Dominican friars give up all personal property at their solemn profession.

The generous support provided by lay people has always been essential to our mission. 

Here are the details of our most important needs at this time.

General Support

The financial situation of the Province and its various priories is often precarious. 

Until recent years, any major needs for funds, such as urgent building works, were met by selling off properties – but we reached a point where we could not do this any more without undermining our mission. 

Since 2012, our strategy has changed, and we are now seeking to fundraise in order to sustain and develop our work.

Your gift for general support will be directed by us to the areas of greatest need.

• £800,000 per year

Support our Local Missions

Each of our priories has a unique mission. Your donation will assist the work they do.
