Keeping Our Vision Alive - kia u ki te whaka kia te kitenga - Mar 2006

A new initiative this year saw the coming together of staffs of all the Sisters of St Joseph facilities at Mt St Joseph Conference Centre.

The gathering was planned to enable people working in each complex to get to know one another and understand their role in carrying on the Josephite mission.

During the afternoon, stories of Mary MacKillop and Julian Tenison Woods were told, and ‘Sister Hyacinth Quinlan’ attended in person!
Staffs then took time to examine the vision of each facility, and look to ways of strengthening it with a particular action for the coming year.

Board representatives and other Sisters joined them for afternoon tea.

‘Sr Hyacinth Quinlan’ aka Catherine Woodcock, discusses the way the Josephite mission has expanded since she arrived in Whanganui in the 1880’s.
