Never too old to participate

Goulburn Congregation’s oldest member, 105 year old Sister Madeleine Lawrence attended a recent reconfiguring gathering in Young. Sister Shirley Garland says that Sister Madeleine was present for the whole event and wanted to be there so she would know “what we would be doing after she’d gone”.

The Goulburn Congregation held its fifth consultation at Young, NSW on September 20. Our oldest, perhaps one could say youngest at heart, was 105 year old Sister Madeleine Lawrence (pictured here with Sister Jan Gray).

Sister Madeleine was present for the whole event and active throughout. She wanted to be there so she would know “what we would be doing after she’d gone”.

We are grateful to the presenters and facilitator for the day: Anne Keim, Anna Koeneman, Jan Gray, and Pam Searle.
