Mission is at the heart of who we are

Pastoral Ministries

Pastoral work threads through all of our ministries, but some sisters also work in more formal pastoral settings, as permanent staff or volunteers. Some work in Mary Ward educational establishments, university, and hospital chaplaincies, others in parish settings, running workshops and training programmes, planning and guiding prayer and liturgy. Others prepare people to receive the sacraments. Sisters visit people in their homes, listen and engage in spiritual conversation, are Eucharistic ministers, and serve the People of God in a variety of ways.
