Welcome - Ceád Míle Fáilte
The primary task of religious life is to live and spread the Gospel of Jesus Christ and the men and women who are members of religious orders do this through a vast variety of ways- education, medicine, social work, development work, counseling, pastoral care, media,ecology, art and culture, farming etc. They work not only in Ireland but also all over the world.
Whatever you want to do in your life you can do as a religious. The opportunities are many, the challenge is great and the commitment is total.
Two thousand years ago Jesus Christ said to those who were thinking of following him to
"Come and see.." We are here to repeat that same invitation to day, "Come and see. .."
What we do
Vocations Ireland provides information on religious life as well as support and accompaniment for those who are trying to discern if they are called to follow this way of life.
