Welcome to the home page of the College of the Immaculate Conception Chapter, Third Order of Preachers. We meet at the Dominican House of Studies in Washington, D.C. We are a branch of the Order of Preachers and are one of thousands of chapters worldwide. The Order of Preachers was founded by St. Dominic, hence, our Order's more commonly known name - Dominicans. Dominican Laity is another name for lay members of the Third Order of Preachers.  

Members of our chapter are married and single laity as well as secular deacons and priests.  Our members come from all over the greater Washington, D.C. area.  Interest in third/secular orders continues  to rise. Since 1997, four new chapters have started in the Washington-Baltimore Metro including St. Catherine of Siena in Great Falls, Va., which was sponsored by Immaculate Conception.
