In this Year of Grace, MC Tracey Edstein welcomed guest speaker and diocesan Co-ordinator of the Year of Grace, Sr Louise Gannon RSJ, whom she described as “the embodiment of grace”. Louise engaged her audience with a Year of Grace quiz and everyone left having learned something.


Chef Bart’s culinary expertise complemented a warm gathering despite the cool day and there was plenty of enriching conversation. Prayers included CACW’s Patricia Banister who had organised the event but was prevented from attending by ill health. The diocesan community wishes Patricia a speedy recovery.
