The Anglican Order of Preachers, commonly known as Dominicans, is a community of men and women, lay and clergy, founded in 1999 as an Anglican expression of the order established by St. Dominic more than 800 years ago.

Members live secular lives, taking vows of simplicity, purity, and obedience. They spend an hour a day in prayer and another hour a day in study, and follow a call to teach and preach.
