Contact the Vocations Director

It is the primary role of the Vocations Director to promote vocations to the Dominican way of life. He is also the initial point of contact for those interested in joining the Order.

Before making any commitment to the Order, you will meet him on a regular basis (normally once a month) during the process of discernment.

He will then decide after this period whether or not to propose a person for interview with a view to making a commitment to join the novitiate.

Interviews for admission take place once each year, normally in late June or early July. Each candidate is interviewed by members of the Order (the admissions board) and by qualified professionals (a psychologist and psychiatrist).

If the outcome of these assessments is positive, the candidate then joins the novitiate community in the September of that year.

The invitation to come and live with us during your period of discernment and to make contact with the director of vocations is open to those who are over 18 and have reached a standard of education equal to being able to enter into third level (university) studies.

You can contact the director of vocations at or at 086 0864420.
