Founded in 1216 by St. Dominic, the Dominican Order, as it is generally called, is made up of priests, brothers, and nuns who live throughout the world.
The Order is organized throughout the world by geographical and, in some cases, cultural locations. Each province, serves the needs of the Church in their region.
Every province has local communities where Dominican priests and brothers live together, pray together, work together, and have fun together.
We are the Dominican Friars of Memphis, part of the worldwide Order of Preachers founded in 1216. We have continuously served Memphis since 1845. We are part of the Province of Saint Martin de Porres in the Order of Friars Preachers serving the Southern United States.
