The St. Thomas Aquinas Lay Dominican Chapter was founded in 2011 within the Southern Dominican Province. Based in Greenville, South Carolina, our members strive in community to live out the Dominican charism under the patronage of St. Thomas Aquinas.
The Christian faithful are called to fulfill their Baptismal and Confirmation promises to partake in the prophetic, priestly and royal mission of our Lord Jesus Christ. Some of the Christian faithful, moved by the Holy Spirit, live according to the spirit and charism of St. Dominic and seek incorporation into the Dominican Order through a special commitment. As members of the Order, they share in its apostolic mission through prayer, contemplation, study, community and apostolate.
