Friendship, food and fun: Sisters of Faith Dinner returns next month

Women from across our Diocese will come together next month for the Diocesan Ecumenical and Interfaith Council’s Sisters of Faith dinner. 

To be hosted on International Women’s Day – Wednesday 8 March – the event is the Council’s first activity for 2023.

“Women of all Religious traditions and those exploring Faith will come together, forming new friendships over a meal at the Victor Peters Suite next to Sacred Heart Cathedral,” Council Chair Christine Sheppard OAM said.

“Our theme is: How important is Spirituality and Equality to Humanity?”

Canon Auntie Dianne Langham, Director of Reconciliation at the Anglican Diocese of Newcastle, will be the guest speaker.

She’ll share insightful stories and encourage everyone to connect with each other, while reflecting on the theme.

Christine encourages anyone interested in building social connections and celebrating women and spirituality to attend the event. Tickets are $30 each, with the funds going towards CatholicCare Social Services Hunter-Manning’s Social Enterprise program.

“We hope to see you there, but if you can’t make it, look out for future Ecumenical and Interfaith opportunities in the coming months,” Christine said. 

“There is a busy year ahead with a variety of opportunities to come together. This question drives us: What can we learn from each other?”
