Alert for God’s NOW…. ‘for the sake of the Holy and whole’

Author: admin2

Society Assembly September 2013

Eighty Presentation Sisters from Australian and PNG gathered at St Joseph’s Retreat Centre Baulkham Hills recently for two days of praying and working together.

Sisters had been preparing for the Assembly over the past twelve months with reading and reflections sent out to all. The main input at the Assembly was provided by Carol Zinn Ssj.   The facilitation process allowed us to work with the materials provided in prayer, conversation and action.  The theme of the Assembly, Alert For God’s NOW…for the sake of the Holy and whole’ was taken from our Congress statement and a quote from the writings of Carol Zinn Ssj.

In the last session of the two days Sisters formed themselves into circles of commitment for action over the next two years.

The energy from deep contemplation and action was evident as the Sisters engage enthusiastically with each other ‘for the sake of the Holy and whole’.

Below are photos of some of the Sisters attending the Assembly:

    We would love to hear about the action commitments discerned through the Assembly so we can promote them at Star of the Sea.
