Spiritual Enrichment Days 2019

Sr. Elaine Morzone MFIC will continue to make days of spiritual enrichment available to deaneries or parishes during this year 2019. Once SYCHAR (House of Prayer and Spirituality) has been opened, there will be opportunities provided at that venue for those living in the Toowoomba area, though Toowoomba parishes are still welcome to ask for a special session in their own location if this better suits their needs.  Elaine is willing to make these days available in outlying parishes on request.
To date, the following days have been scheduled (info flyer for each date):
Jandowae   Sunday 13 October 2019 after Liturgy 

Becoming Soul Full: A Retreat for Catholic Women

Date: 21-23/10/19
Where: James Byrne Centre, Highfields
Cost: See Flyer
An invitation to Catholic women who struggle, question, survive, dream, advocate, care. Come, take time to listen to the Spirit and share your story of faith with other women. Come together with open and listening hearts and with compassionate acceptance of one another. This retreat is a time to name our reality, concerns and dreams for the church in a safe and supportive environment. Let us name our hopes for Catholic women of the Diocese of Toowoomba. Retreat facilitated by Andrea Dean, Director of the Office for the Participation of Women and Office for Lay Pastoral Ministry within the Australian Catholic Bishops Conference.

Volunteers Needed: SPRED Catechists

Date: 6/11/19 Wednesday
Time: 6:30pm-715pm
Where: SPRED Centre, 34 Hume Street, Toowoomba
Because no-one should feel like a stranger in their own house…
We all need friends in our lives, but for many people with an intellectual disability there is no one that they can call ‘friend’ – there are carers, support workers, parents, guardians, family – but a friend is something different, in friendship we choose each other. Are you someone they could call friend?
Please support this initiative by talking about the work of SPRED to friends, family and colleagues. Why not invite them to attend an information session to find out more about how to become involved? SPREAD THE WORD ABOUT SPRED
