All around the world, thousands benefit from the online preaching of the Dominican friars via torch.op.org

In fact, many of our readers are priests, deacons and catechists, who use Torch to inspire their own preaching and teaching - so our apostolate reaches many thousands more! 

Could you help support the Dominican Friars who give their time in this way? 

Torch is a free service and available to all. Each homily requires thought, prayer and research, and takes up to half a day to write. 

- If we can raise £1500, that covers the basic costs of the friars' time. 

- If we can raise £3000, that covers our annual website and email costs too. 

The friars pray every day for all their benefactors.

Wishing you every blessing,

- Fr Lawrence Lew OP, Editor of Torch
