All renewal in the Church must have mission as its goal St. John Paul II Ecclesia in Oceania 19
St Dominic’s preaching mission was in direct response to the urgent needs of his time. As Dominican sisters we receive the charism of St. Dominic, and are called to discover and address the particular needs of our own time and place as our patron St Catherine of Siena did in hers
The sisters are also involved in a number of other ministries: volunteer work with the elderly, parish ministries, catechetics, study groups, and youth groups. Sisters serve on various committees in relation to Education, Health Care, Theology, and Ecumenical Dialogue and contribute to Catholic journals and newspapers. We also support the work of those who are engaged with asylum seekers, and, through correspondence, voice our concern for causes of justice and peace, environmental matters, and pro-life issues.
