Situated between Hampstead and Camden, just a 10 minute walk from Primrose Hill and Hampstead Heath, St Dominic's Priory serves a stretch of North West London which includes Gospel Oak, South End Green, Belsize Park, parts of Primrose Hill and Chalk Farm. The Dominican Friars came to the area in 1861 and are still here today with a community of Friars in the Priory, a community of Dominican Sisters nearby in Constantine Road and a group of Lay Dominicans who meet each month at the Priory.
St Dominic's Priory was opened in 1867 and our Priory Church dates from 1883. The Priory Church is one of the largest Catholic Churches in London, with a design based on the structure of the Rosary Prayer. During the week, both morning and evening, Dominican friars, sisters and lay people sing the office together. Both friars and sisters serve what is a lively and welcoming parish community, with a weekend attendance of about 900 men women and children. Friars and sisters are also engaged in a wide range of apostolates including hospital, university and school chaplaincy, adult education and third level teaching of theology, scripture and philosophy, publishing, post-graduate study, and preaching the Word of God. It is also the residence of the Provincial of the Dominican friars in England and Scotland. At the Priory, we work together to make our Church and Priory a place where the praises of God are sung daily, the sacrifice of the Mass is offered for the needs of the Church and the world, a place where friends and strangers are welcomed, where people return to the Church and above all, where God's mercy is preached and lived both in and out of season.
