Sisters minister in the fields of physiotherapy and nursing, counselling, ethics, chaplaincy and pastoral care in both hospitals and hospices, as well as community based services and practice.

Recognising the human person is not simply a physical being, those sisters who minister in healthcare seek to provide wholistic care which respects the dignity of each person, and is sensitive to the cultural, spiritual, and emotional needs of those we encounter.

Sisters not only deliver hands on care, but some also engage with the challenging issues of the provision of healthcare through participation in ethics committees, and research and publishing.
