CatholicCare hosts an evening with Tracey Spicer

When it comes to coping with impostor syndrome, being a powerful female in a male-dominated field and daring to start a family while working as an on-air news personality, Tracey Spicer certainly has some stories to share.

Becoming a successful step-parent

August 04, 2018 Tanya Russell

Q   I’ve just moved in with my partner and his two children; both girls, aged ten and 13. I’ve never had children on my own and I don’t want to replace their mother but I do want to build a relationship with them. My partner would like us to parent them together and this scares me a little bit as I never want to come across as the “evil stepmother”. We got along well before I moved in and I would like to build on this relationship. How do I now adjust to this new role while preserving our positive relationship?

TUESDAYS WITH TERESA: Plenary Council 2020

Speak boldly and with passion, but also listen with an open and humble heart! ~Pope Francis

We have been very blessed over the past few weeks to have had a theological feast in our diocese, courtesy of the Adult Faith Formation Office and Council, as well as the Catholic Schools Office. We have been visited and theologically nourished by James McEvoy, Richard Lennan, Richard Gaillardetz and then by all of the presenters who spoke at the BBI e-conference. All of these speakers and events have drawn good numbers, but of course, there are very few new faces who come along to listen to, and to be engaged in, amazing faith formation and conversation. It has been an absolute delight to be with good people of faith, and to engage with them in deep listening and conversation.
