Apostolate

Our apostolic activities lie in areas related to Catholic education. This usually involves such activities as:
  • Preparing and coordinating R.E. Programmes
  • Writing text-books
  • Class-room teaching Assistance to Home-School families
  • Giving lectures/talks/conferences on faith-topics
  • Writing for and editing Catholic publications.
We only engage in part-time apostolic work, thereby remaining free to carry out the duties of the liturgical celebration, study and prayer in the specific Dominican charism to which we are committed.

Currently we also serve the families of Saint Mary MacKillop Colleges Wagga Wagga. The Sisters teach part-time in the college, are in charge of its Religious Education Program, teach RE and other subjects.




The Conventual Sisters of St Dominic have been involved with Saint Mary MacKillop Colleges, Wagga Wagga  - an independent, counter-cultural Catholic school - from the outset. They wrote (and teach) the Year 7 – 10 RE programme: 'The Faith of the Church' and the classical 7 - 10 English Literature programme. They also teach Religion, Church History and Scripture from K - 12, and a variety of other subjects in the Secondary school. To safeguard their religious life, however, the Sisters teach in the mornings only and devote the rest of their day to the monastic observances of prayer, work, study and silence with God.
