Southern Region’s Quiet Day (2019)
On the 25th November 2019 at the Community of the Holy Name Spiritually Centre the Quiet Day for Southern Region was held.
Our morning welcome from the Sisters was expressed as we enjoyed our cup of tea and renewed our friendships as we were reminded this is our last time to talk for the day.
The Theme for the day was, For A Season of Transition - The Getting of Wisdom - conducted by The Revd. Dr Geoff Cheong, locum at St Matthew’s Cheltenham.
Started our time together with prayer, as we entered the world of silence.
St Christopher’s Bentleigh East Mothers’ Union celebrated on Mothering Sunday (22nd March 2020) the closing of their Branch. They had a strong service record in the Parish and the community for many years.
2020 - the year of COVID-19 & ZOOM
“As part of the team I have tried to take part in the Zoom meetings.
Our year has had its challenges and most of us have learnt how to get to know the technology better.
Having phoned many of the Southern Regional Leaders, it was wonderful to learn how their parishes were getting involved by Zoom. Listening to the Archbishop of Melbourne’s talks and our Bishops in each Region, plus St Paul’s Cathedral and, not the least, England’s Mothers’ Union Midday prayers.
We pray for one another and when the time comes we will welcome in the New Year.” Marilyn Airey – Southern Region Coordinator
