The Australian Catholic Bishops’ Conference and the Broken Bay Institute recently hosted a National e-Conference entitled Mary First Disciple. The conference was streamed live via internet. It is estimated that more than 30,000 participants from from at least fifteen countries participated in this conference. The keynote speake, Fr Frank Moloney SDB, spoke on Mary as disciple, woman and mother.
Sr Vivienne facilitated a conversation on the gospel account of Mary at Cana. A student, a parent, the son of a teacher and a teacher from Marist Sisters’ College Woolwich formed the panel. Vivienne invited the panel to share on their impressions of this incident in the life of Mary and the challenges that it held for them in their own lives. In concluding the panel discussion, she invited all of us to let “Mary nudge us to listen to the One Voice that matters”.
