Autumn series of "Wake up the World to Mercy" sessions gets off to a great start

Two more sessions are planned in this autumn series. They will each be presented twice, once as an evening session and once the daytime session.

The next session will focus on ‘hospitality’. Marjorie Jackman, former principal of Catherine McAuley Westmead will examine the concept of ‘hospitality’ in scripture and explore its implications for us as Mercy people both in society and in the church. Marjorie is a passionate advocate of the Justice particularly for women in the church. The evening session will be held on Thursday 30 April from 6pm to 7:30pm. The repeat session will be held on 18 May from 10:30am to 12 noon.

The third session will focus on ’compassion’ and will be presented by Claire Thomas, the Director of Mission at OLMC Parramatta. Claire will investigate whether we are born with compassion or whether it is a learned skill. That will lead on to reflecting on how, as local, national and international communities, we become more compassionate towards those in need.

The evening session on ‘compassion’ will be held on Thursday, 4 June from 6pm to 7:30pm. It will be repeated on Tuesday, 23 June from 10:30am to 12 noon.
