The Dominican Sisters Cabra preach the Word of God through our work in the areas of Education, Ecology and Justice. We have always responded to the call of society and our ministries are based on where there are the greatest needs in the world today.
Today, across the regions where we have a presence, be it in Ireland, South Africa, Latin America or North America, our work extends to adult education, giving adults a second chance and to teaching about the importance of sustaining the earth.
Some of our Sisters continue to teach in secondary schools and special schools while a number of our Sisters are also involved in third level education and in writing and publishing. Some of our Sisters also provide support to children of school going age with homework. We are also engaged in pastoral work in the communities in parishes, working with more vulnerable communities to create a more just society.
Today, many of our Sisters help and assist young mothers to care for their children, educating them on the importance of health and nutrition. We also involved on developing awareness around HIV and AIDS. Our Sisters also distribute food to the most needy. Some of our Sisters are also involved in the areas of family therapy. Our ministries also extend to chaplaincy and prison visits in different regions.
