The Mass was celebrated in the Mount St Joseph’s Convent Chapel in Young.  After the Mass all adjourned to a dinner provided in Catherine McAuley Hall where many stories were shared and the commitment of the nine sisters honoured.

On the Sunday we were happy to welcome Maree Haggerty rsm to work with us as we prepare for the change which is to come within the New Institute. Maree’s presentation, entitled “Become the Change that will Change the World”, was warmly appreciated. She provided us with the opportunity to search deeply into our own attitudes and responses; our spirituality and commitment, all in an atmosphere of humour, loving relationship, challenge and a deep wisdom.
