This week I am writing my message early, on Wednesday 8th March, International Women’s Day. I am surprised and pleased by the volume of writing regarding this day and the many events that have been held to mark this occasion. The theme for this year is #BeBoldForChange
This week we begin our Lenten journey, a journey of prayer, fasting and almsgiving. I am conscious that for many Catholics, Project Compassion features strongly in their history, as generous people who provide for overseas aid relief and development.
Sunday heralds the commencement of a new week and once again I find myself at my desk reflecting on the past week and preparing for the week ahead. I have not long been home from attending the Upper Hunter Regional Council meeting at Scone.
