A word from the President

To all who in every place call on the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, their Lord and ours: Grace to you and peace from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ.

cf 1 Cor.

Greetings and welcome to the Website of the European Council of Lay Dominican Fraternities (ECLDF). A website designed to assist in the greater communication of the mission of the Lay Fraternities of St Dominic. On behalf of my Council sister and brothers we are honoured to invite you to peruse and explore these pages.

We particularly recommend accessing our Agora Platform a link to which can be found here and will bring you into an interactive space of information and formation for Lay Dominicans throughout Europe and beyond. Perhaps you may like to explore the very nature of what it is to be a lay member of the Order of Preachers and hopefully find ways, tools, methods and inspiration to further Saint Dominic’s message, to Praise, to Bless and to Preach.

We pray that whatever journey you travel that you find encouragement and hope in these humble pages and that through the gifts of the Holy Spirit you receive motivation and insight in your search for Veritas (truth).

Your brother

Mr Damien McDonnell, OP
President ECLDF
