New vocations video made in 2011 for the English Dominican Province.

The Order of Friars Preachers is an international religious order of priests and brothers in the Catholic Church. The Order was founded in 1216 by St Dominic, with a mission for 'preaching and the salvation of souls'. The friars live together in communities called priories, bound together by vow and observing the evangelical counsels of poverty, chastity, and obedience.

Members of the Order are known around the world as 'Dominicans' after their founder. In Great Britain, Dominican friars became known in mediæval times as 'black friars' because of the black cappa or cloak which they wear over their white habits.

The Province of England comprises seven houses in England and Scotland, and two in the Caribbean.
