Preaching Centres

Each Sister preaches the Gospel in her own unique way. Some use words, others use images, others still use pottery, or printing, or presence.  We also have four centres of corporate preaching ministry, each with a different feel and focus.

Niland Conference Centre

The Niland Conference Centre, founded in 1999, is run by Sisters to promote and support Christian Spirituality, Education and Faith Formation and outreach to the wider Community.

Dominican Sisters Preaching

Our Ministry of Preaching

The zeal for preaching and the salvation of souls, which lies at the heart of our Dominican charism, is expressed through a variety of different ministries and apostolates. 


We are  a Congregation of Educators and Preachers, committed to the Dominican charism of saving souls and preaching the Good News.

Reaching out to Others

Justice and Service are at the heart of the Good News. Jesus calls us to recognise Him in each of our Brothers and Sisters. We strive to do this in many different ways.
