Meet the Team
A Team of volunteers
Our Formation for Mission Team is composed of 12 sisters and 14 lay persons who are dedicating some of their time to be at the service of the diocese.
They have families, jobs, and parish commitments as catechists and helpers, yet they have generously signed up to a diocesan commitment to be at the service of fellow catechists, parents, grandparents and parishioners.
Sr Hyacinthe is originally from France. She joined the Dominican Sisters in 2000. She is passionate about catechesis and the transmission of the faith, and has an MA in religious education and catechesis, an ecclesiastical Licence in catechetics, and is currently working on a doctoral research on the transmission of hope from a Thomistic perspective.
