New Year: New Lockdown: New Opportunities: Lumen Dominican Centre online supports – “Fill your minds…”

We are an Adult Education Centre, located on the Dominican Campus in Sion Hill, Blackrock, Co Dublin, and our website is

On our website you can read our Mission Statement:

Lumen Dominican Centre derives its mission from the educational ideal of the Congregation of Dominican Sisters, Cabra within the Order’s tradition of teaching and preaching.

Its purpose is to foster the full human flourishing of each person, in the spirit of Paul’s words: “Fill your minds with everything that is true, everything that is just, everything that is lovely, everything that is gracious.” (Phil. 4:8ff). Towards this end, Lumen seeks to provide a space of encounter and reflection, through which participants can be supported in their life journey and in their search for meaning. All are encouraged to respect the group in its diversity as a place for growth and mutual enlightenment.

The programme is truly ecumenical, seeking to promote the dialogue between faith and culture and acknowledging the giftedness of other religious traditions. In this way, Lumen fosters the development of all its participants and enables them to undertake various forms of service or ministry in Church and society.

We appreciate that some of you may not be able to attend the centre in person but we wish to draw your attention to a number of online modules that we are offering this term and which you can learn about on the attached brochure or on the website.

Please note that two of our online modules will begin in January.

If a course is over subscribed please do email us on and we will put you on a waiting list. There may be registration difficulties until early next week but we hope to have all issues resolved by Tuesday 12th  at the latest.

Thanking you for any support you are willing to give us.
