The Sisters of the Good Samaritan are hosting a “come and see” day in Port Pirie in July for young women who are interested in religious life and would like to find out more.
During the day, participants will have the opportunity to meet some Good Samaritan Sisters, find out about the Good Sam story, pray together, and share conversation and a meal.
The Good Samaritan Sisters’ “come and see” day will be held on Saturday July 22, 2017 from 10:00am to 4:00pm at the Good Samaritan Community, 366 The Terrace, Port Pirie.
The Congregation of the Sisters of Good Samaritan of the Order of St Benedict, colloquially known as the Good Sams, is Australia’s first ‘home-grown’ congregation of Catholic religious women. They were founded in Sydney in 1857 by Archbishop John Bede Polding, an English Benedictine monk and Australia’s first bishop.
Today, there are around 200 sisters living and working throughout Australia, in Japan, the Philippines and Kiribati.
