St. Catherine’s Dominican Monastery was established in 1246 and, it was an important centre of spirituality and education until the Reformation in 1525.
Under our management is the clausure of the Monastery, one of the most valuable historical buildings in the Old Town of Tallinn. The clausure contained important rooms of the Monastery – the prior’s room, library, the Capital Hall, dormitory, sacristy, walks, and vestry.
Today, the Mass and sacraments are administered in a separate chapel, by the Anglocatholic Church here.
Our current Institute derives from Academia Catholica, established in 1994.
