Anglican Order of Preachers

The Anglican Order of Preachers is an Anglican religious order commonly referred to as "Dominicans". The order was founded in the late 1990s by the Reverend Jeffery Mackey O.P.A. in the United States. It includes both men and women, married and single, ordained and lay. The brothers and sisters live under a common Rule of Life. The order is a recognized "Christian Community" (a formal Episcopal term for a dispersed community of friars or sisters under modified monastic vows) of the Episcopal Church in the United States of America. Its aim is to capture the early spirit of St. Dominic's preaching movement.
