Region of the Southern Cross Welcome Lunch - IIM & ECM

10 January 2020 | General Interest

July and August were very special months for us this year as it was our privilege as the Region of the Southern Cross to be able to host our Sisters who were attending the Congregational Intercultural, Intergenerational Meeting and/or the Extended Council Meeting. Along with Sr Bernadette and Congregational Leadership, Sisters began arriving in the Region some time before the meetings began, some visiting Communities in the Region, others catching their breath before going to MacKillop Place North Sydney where the meetings were being held.

One of the highlights was a Welcome Lunch held on Friday 26th July at Dalton Gardens Auditorium Ryde. Following a very beautiful liturgy prepared by Srs Liz West and Monica Whelan in St Margaret’s Chapel and celebrated by Fr Kerry Bayada. A very happy and excited group of Sisters was shown to the Dalton Gardens Auditorium where a very lively meet and greet gave expression to Mary Potter’s words “When God infuses Joy into us let us cultivate it and try to give it to others ...”. Sisters and our Facilitator for the meetings, Donna Fyffe, were welcomed to the day.
