Lay people have been associated with the Order founded by St Dominic since its beginnings in the 13th century. They have had a variety of names in their history, and at present they are usually called Lay Dominicans or the Dominican Laity.

Glasgow Lay Dominicans is one of these groups. The members share in the spirituality and mission of the Order as the circumstances of their lives allow. This involves study, prayer and action in accordance with the Gospel and according to the charism of St Dominic.

The group shares various aspects of life with other branches of the Dominican family in Glasgow, and has much in common with many sorts of Dominicans in secular and religious life in the UK and worldwide. There is a Dominican priory, Blackfriars, in Queens Drive in the south side of Glasgow, and many gather there or with the Dominican chaplain at the Chaplaincy of the University of Strathclyde in John Street in the centre of Glasgow for study, prayer and good company. Mass is celebrated there at 11 o'clock each Sunday and many of the lay Dominican or with the Dominican chaplain at the Chaplaincy of the University of Strathclyde in John Street in the centre of Glasgow for study, prayer and good company. Mass is celebrated there at 11 o'clock each Sunday and many of the lay Dominicans can be found there. Members also meet in their own homes or work places.

Glasgow Lay Dominicans is made up of a variety of people: what they have in common with each other and with other Dominicans is a willingness to live out their Christian faith under the guidance and protection of St Dominic. If you are interested in finding out more about our group, please contact: glasgow@laity.op.org or come along one Sunday to the chaplaincy Mass. There is no pressure on anyone to join the group, and indeed some time in formation is normal before a person does join. Even if you just want to ask a few questions or see what we are about, we will be happy to make contact.
