Caringbah Associates celebrate Mercy DaySeptember 28, 2006
Caringbah’s “Circle of Mercy Associates” enjoyed a special Mass for Our Lady of Mercy on September 26.
About 35 associates participated in the gathering and were joined by Wilcannia-Forbes Sisters Pat Lynch (Congregation Leader), Patricia Higgins and Mary Mutlow, and Parramatta Sister Loreto McLeod.
In her homily, Sister Patricia Higgins reflected on an article about associates written by Sister Caroline Ryan. The associates renewed their commitment to Mercy living and continued their celebration with a delicious morning tea and raffle which raised $135 for Mercy Works.
The Circle of Mercy is alive and well in Caringbah and provides wonderful opportunities for deepening the spirituality of our lay associates. Sister Mary Mutlow co-ordinates and inspires these wonderful Mercy women who meet every two months. At each gathering they hear input on spirituality from an invited person.
Their next meeting will be a retreat day led by Kim Willis, a lay woman and Pastoral Associate in the parish of Caringbah who is very gifted in this area.
