It was with mixed emotions that young Marist Sisters who had been on renewal in Sydney bid farewell to each other in Mulgoa on Sunday 5th January. Their five week renewal period has be a time of many blessings and their identity as Marist has deepened during this time. Now they return to their home Regions and Sectors to continue living as Mary’s presence in their communities and places of ministry. Marist Sisters in Australia have been delighted to meet them and experience their youthful enthusiasm. In farewelling them this week we wish them a safe journey home and assure them of our prayerful support as they continue their journey as Marist Sisters.
