A gathering of people closely associated with the Good Samaritan Sisters will be held in Sydney in early October 2013.
This third Good Samaritan partnership gathering will bring together Good Samaritan oblates and associates, partners in mission and friends from around Australia and the Pacific to explore the theme “Stewarding the Good Samaritan Benedictine Charism into the Future”.
“The gathering aims to provide an extended opportunity for all associated with the Sisters of the Good Samaritan to gather, to explore, and to deepen our experience of living our Good Samaritan Benedictine spirituality and way of life into the future,” explained Sister Bernardina Sontrop, one of the organisers.
Bernardina said the program will include a variety of experiences, including prayer and reflection, plenary sessions, small group workshops, as well as sharing at table and experiencing aspects of community life.
She also said the 2013 gathering will be “an ideal opportunity for formation in the Good Samaritan Benedictine charism for those former Good Samaritan schools that are endeavouring to keep the charism alive in their school”.
Anyone interested in experiencing the Good Samaritan Benedictine way of life is warmly invited to attend the gathering from October 5 to 7, 2013 at St Scholastica’s College, 2-4 Avenue Road Glebe Point.
Gathering attendance fee $200 (includes all sessions, workshops and meals). For accommodation options download the flyer.
