A Ministry to Enhance Appreciation of Holy Icons
and the Traditions of the Eastern Churches

Christ - High

Jesus Christ - The High Priest
This is the Home Page of DominICON, a ministry of Western Dominican Province, the Dominican Order (Order of Preachers) of the Roman Catholic Church, serving the western United States to expand and enhance the appreciation of holy icons, sacred images in the Byzantine tradition.


"Since, in fact, we believe that the venerable and ancient tradition of the Eastern churches is an integral part of the heritage of Christ's church, the first need... is to be familiar with that tradition, so as to be nourished by it and to encourage the process of unity in the best way possible for each."
Pope John Paul II, Orientale Lumen


DominICON is directed by Fr. Brendan McAnerney, OP.  The ministry is currently on hiatus as Fr. Brendan is serving as pastor of St. George Melkite-Greek Catholic Church in Sacramento, California. It is hoped that sometime in 2015 the ministry will be renewed. For people searching for icon instruction or an iconographer, I suggest, in Santa Rosa, California.

Contact Fr. Brendan at:, or phone (in USA) 916/ 974-1134.
