Moving Forward Together

Throughout August and September, just under 500 Sisters of Mercy as well as Associates and lay colleagues from a wide variety of ministries, gathered at five locations around Australia and Papua New Guinea. At the heart of these Mission Gatherings was the desire to discern our way forward as an Institute – to determine what our call to mission truly means.

The Institute Mission Team have spent several months working through the thoughtful and considered responses of all who participated in order to prepare a set of proposals from the work of the gatherings. These proposals will next be considered by the Institute Leadership Team. While these proposals are in the final stages of discussion we invite you to join in the spirit of the gatherings through viewing some of the photos taken in each place seen in the photo gallery below.

Also available for viewing is the social context DVD that was played during the Gatherings, featuring representatives from the Edmund Rice Centre, Caritas, and St. Vincent de Paul Australia. That clip can be viewed below.
