Fr. Dominic White, Dominicans, Cambridge Blackfriars – The Dominican Friars are a male religious order within the Catholic Church. We are called ‘Dominicans’ after our founder, St Dominic, who established the order in 1216. We are recognisable by our distinctive black and white habit and the rosary that hangs from our belt. Our order includes a great number of saints and blesseds, such as St Martin de Porres, St Thomas Aquinas, and the artist Fra Angelico. The Dominican order is now present all over the world, and involved in a wide variety of activities. We are blessed with many vocations, meaning that there is a strongly youthful aspect to the order.  To find out more, please click here –   www.blackfriarscambridge.org.uk
