Our annual conference “The Heart of our Mission: Serving at the Margins” was held at the Grand Chancellor Hotel in Hobart on 10-11 May 2018. We were pleased to have over 180 delegates attend and whilst we did not have the weather on our side it certainly did not dampen everyone’s spirits. The rain was welcomed but just not all at once!
This year our keynote speaker was Father David Ranson who spoke on the topics of Mercy, Margin and Moment: Francis’ Moulding of the Church and New Wine, New Wineskins (Mark 2:21-22) New Models of Mission in the Australian Church. You can find a copy of Father Ranson’s keynote addresses together with photos and presentations from our Health and Education ministries at www.mamconferences.com
We wish to thank all of the participants who attended the conference together with special guests, sponsors, MCs, staff and the students of Mt Carmel and St Aloysius Colleges for making the event a memorable one.
In 2019 Mary Aikenhead Ministries will be celebrating its 10th Anniversary. Our conference theme will be “The Heart of our Mission: Preferential Option for the Poor” and will be held on 22 and 23 July 2019 at the Catholic Leadership Centre in Melbourne.
We look forward to seeing you there!
Deputy Chair and 2018 Conference Convenor
