My Order of Dominican friars is what is called a “mendicant” order – we rely on donations for all our work and our daily needs. The reason we do so is so that we can spend our whole time devoted to study and preaching, rather than being concerned about where our next meal or our books are coming from. I post links to good causes every once in a while, such as Catholic Relief Services or the Catholic Near East Welfare Association, and I have some “sponsored” monasteries in the sidebar to the right, but I wanted to specifically mention my own Order’s needs today.
I have just added a link to a PayPal donation option in the right navbar, and I would encourage those who would be interested in sponsoring our website preaching outreach over at www.preachingfriars.org to consider making a donation. The money goes directly toward our preaching efforts over the Internet.
Thank you for your generosity toward the poor and toward those of us involved in preaching the Gospel of peace and truth.
Yours in Christ,
Br. James Dominic, OP
