Resources for Praying at Home

Fenwick’s Campus Ministry seeks to help the Fenwick community grow closer to God and one another through prayer, liturgy, retreats, and service in the spirit of the Dominican tradition. While we pray together when possible, these resources are meant to assist Friars and their families while we are apart.
