Join us on our Jubilee Pilgrimage!
News | In 1221 the first Dominican Friars arrived in Britain – this summer, a group of friars will make this journey again, following in their footsteps. Join us on our journey!
In the middle of summer 800 years ago a group of Dominican friars landed in Kent, sent from Bologna by St Dominic. They walked first to Canterbury, by the 10th August they were in London, and five days later, on 15th August 1221, they arrived in Oxford where they made their first foundation. This year a group of friars, with two of the student brothers among them, will be making that same journey, arriving in Oxford exactly 800 years after their predecessors, on 15th August 2021, the Solemnity of the Assumption.
