St Catherine’s is the only Dominican community of friars in Northern Ireland, but it is one of the busiest Dominican churches on the whole island.

Liturgical and sacramental ministries in the priory church hold an important place in the lives of the community here, as does parish ministry in co-operation with the diocesan clergy.

Their other preaching activities include retreat work, teaching scripture and theology, organising pilgrimages and ecumenical dialogue.
