Official Launch of the new Dominican Friars website

Tuesday, February 17, 2015

Launch party attendees show the website on a range of devicesAfter midday prayers today at Blackfriars, Oxford, the new website was officially launched at a pancake party! (Pictures below...)

Among those attending were the student brothers who write for the Godzdogz subsite; many of the friars whose homilies are posted weekly on Torch; and a big crowd of friends.

Richard Brown, the Dominicans' Development Director, said he was delighted to see the site being used so actively: 

"I am extremely fortunate to be working with a religious order which places such importance on communication, whether preaching in church or evangelising through digital media. This new website has been designed as a new 'pulpit' from which the Dominicans can share the Gospel and promote their important mission.

"I would also like to express special thanks to the Abbot and community of Buckfast Abbey which provided a generous grant towards the costs of the website build; and also the many individuals who responded to an online appeal for support for this project."

The new website features:

Please can you also include the links to Twinclarkes blog- it is inspiring preaching on often everyday themes- a good example for other Dominicans. As the brothersmay not have the flush of youth, but they do have the Domincan voice of experience.
i would also like to see articles about how the Dominican parishes engage with their communities- both in the early days, and at present.
I was brought up in St Dominics and now attend Holy Cross leicester

In the section of the history of the order in England it is wrongly stated that HINCKLEY is in Staffordshire !!! HINCKLEY, my home town, is in LEICESTERSHIRE. The order owes much to Hinckley as your archives must show. Also Frs Mark Brocklehurst, Reginald Ginns and Luke Walker were all form Hinckley. Other English Dominican centres came after Hinckley. So sad that the order had to relinquish St Peter's Hinckley.
