O.P. stands for ‘Ordo Prædicatorum’, which means ‘Order of Preachers’. That is the name of a Catholic religious ‘family’ that is comprised of every state of life in the Church, namely the laity, nuns, sisters, brothers, and clergy.
Founded in 1216 by St Dominic de Guzmán, we have been preaching the Gospel of Jesus Christ for the salvation of souls, believing that He is the Truth that sets us free, and that God alone satisfies the hunger of the human heart for goodness, beauty and love.
