On Sat May 21st, members of the Athena Women’s Group based in Palmerston North met with the Sisters at Mt St Joseph in a day of sharing of Mission and Spirituality.

The Athena Group originally came together to “share a common vision, desiring the support of each other, recognizing a connectedness in all that we are, do and believe”. The formation of the group came from the realisation that in the institutional work structures of the time they were unable to work in a connected and holistic way. In 1989 they became affiliated to the Sisters of St Joseph to enable them to work as a Charitable Trust.

The day with the Sisters enable both groups to strengthen their links and discover many common elements of Mission and Spirituality.
