Wake Up The World To Mercy: Spring Series, 2015
The topic for the first session was entitled “Bringing Spirituality Down to Earth”. Sr Valda Dickinson invited participants to consider our response to Pope Francis’ challenge to care for and protect the earth which is our common home.
Using Laudato Si, Valda led the group in reflection and discussion, outlining the influence of Pope Francis’ cosmological framework in writing this encyclical. There was time given for reflection on the Prayers that open and close the document, short video clips to ponder some of the key points made by Pope Francis and time for shared reflection. The presentation was thoroughly enjoyed by participants at the morning and evening sessions.
Each session is presented twice, once as an evening session and once during the morning. The two further sessions planned in this Spring series will be led by Sr Aine Barrins rsm (Ireland) and Mrs Ann O’Brien, Catholic Care, Parramatta Diocese. Aine will speak on Thursday 29th October, when both morning (10am-11.30am) and evening (6.00pm-7.30pm) sessions will be held on the same day.
RSVP for Sr Aine’s sessions: Monday, 26 October
