What We Do
The Sisters in the past mostly worked in our Hospitals as Nurses, Physiotherapists, Laboratory Technicians, Doctors and Radiographers. The Irish province ran a training school for student nurses.
Today, we don’t run Hospitals in Ireland. Instead, we’re involved in social and pastoral work. That work happens in hospitals, hospices and prisons and takes the form of counselling and chaplaincy. Sisters are also involved in work with refugees and the homeless. We’re active in bereavement support groups and environmental work.
How we allocate our assets
We support our retired Sisters to live life as fully as possible and ensure they are cared for with dignity and respect. We provide significant financial support to charities working with the most vulnerable members of society, here in Ireland and overseas, as you can see from the chart below.
