Eight educators from the United States and Australia came together from the 7th – 11th January for the first programme of the year. Immersing themselves in Catherine’s story, focussing on the educational dimension, why Catherine thought education was so important, the types of schools the early Sisters established, personal leadership, and using some of Catherine’s stories to identify a Mercy response to the issue of bullying, were just some of the topics covered by the group during the week.
