The Dominican Sisters Cabra are part of the Order of Preachers founded by St Dominic. We preach the Word of God through our work in the areas of Education, Ecology and Justice. This work is carried out across our regions in Ireland, South Africa, Portugal, Louisiana, Argentina, Bolivia and Brazil.
Today, the Dominican Sisters Cabra in Ireland are based in Dublin, Galway, Wicklow and in the North. We work in the areas of adult education, providing adult education programmes in Sion Hill. We also educate adults and children about the importance of sustaining the Earth at An Tairseach, our Ecology Centre based in Wicklow.
We are trustees of a number of primary schools and special schools for children with learning disabilities and have placed the leadership and management of the majority of our secondary schools in the Le Cheile Schools Trust, while retaining the trusteeship of the secondary schools in the North.
Our justice office in Dublin is a Dominican Sisters Cabra initiative aiming to promote Justice and Equality through education, research, advocacy and justice campaigns. We also continue our pastoral work in the community in parishes, with families and with the young and elderly.
Our ministries also extend to chaplaincy and prison visits.
In our regions in South Africa, Latin America and Louisiana, we are committed to working towards a more just society, assisting the poor and vulnerable in our communities with vital supports in the areas of education, learning and assistance with day to day basic requirements.
