The Marist Sisters are very conscious of the fact their recent General Chapter took place within the Year of Consecrated Life. At a recent gathering of Marist Sisters in Australia, the General Chapter Delegates shared their experience of the General Chapter. In response the Sisters present engaged in a process to begin developing a Design for Life for Marist Sisters in Australia. While gathered the Sisters also took the opportunity to celebrate the Year of Consecrated Life. Fr Bob Barber, Provincial of the Marist Fathers, presided at the Eucharist for this celebration. At the afternoon tea following this Mass the sisters congratulated and farewelled Srs Grace Ellul, newly elected Congregational Leader, and Vivienne Goldstein, newly elected General Councillor. Grace and Vivienne will leave for Rome at the end of June.
