The Fraternity of Saint Vincent Ferrer (FSVF), whose priory is located in Chémeré-le-Roi (France), is a traditional religious community inspired by the Dominican spirit. Disciples of St. Thomas Aquinas, the Brothers are apostles whose preaching is oriented to the salvation of souls. With great enthusiasm the FSVF extends their apostolate to the English speaking world with The Mass in My Life.
Our spirituality: to Jesus through Mary
Aided by the Blessed Virgin Mary, we gaze in contemplation upon her son Jesus, who is “the way, the truth, and the life,” who leads us to the mystery of the most Holy Trinity.
Our charism: to preach the contemplated Truth
“What will become of sinners?” The cry of our holy Father Dominic lives on in the hearts of each brother, and awakens a desire to bring to all nations the joy of the Gospel.
Our life: to follow Christ radically
We profess the religious vows of poverty, chastity, and obedience and, as “mendicant friars,” live exclusively on alms.
