Just a quick update on some positive news for Australians, with a request for prayers for the success of our emerging traditional religious communities.
Daughters of the Maternal Heart of Mary
There will be a discernment weekend for the emerging community of the Daughters of the Maternal Heart of Mary on November 24-26 in Sydney.
The Daughters of the Maternal Heart of Mary is a semi-contemplative traditional community of women based in Sydney, Australia, living a life of prayer and work according to the spirit of St. Benedict.
If you are a single woman aged 18-35, please do consider going to the weekend - you can find more information by following the link.
Notre Dame Priory
And Australia's emerging men's monastery in Tasmania takes a big step forward in a few weeks, with the clothing of the first group of novices.
Please keep these young men in your prayers as they take the next step on their path.
You could also take a look at the monk shop to help support them.
