The purpose of the Conference of Religious of Ireland is to serve the leaders and through them the members of Religious Congregations. It provides a forum where religious can work together in the mission they hold in common.

The Conference of Religious of Ireland (CORI) came about through the amalgamation of the two conferences of men and women in 1983.

To-day it has a membership of 136 Religious Congregations that through its leadership represents in excess of 9,000 men and women religious across the island of Ireland, north and south. As many of these congregations have members across all continents, CORI has the capacity to network across the globe.

The mission of CORI is that of Jesus who was sent into the world and who calls and sends us in turn (John 20:21).
