Dubbo Photo News - - In focus - Con­trib­uted by CHRIS­TINE ROWAN, SIS­TERS OF ST JOSEPH

FORTY Re­li­gious Sis­ters gath­ered at the Cat­tle­man’s in Dubbo for their an­nual Ru­ral Min­istry Con­fer­ence from Septem­ber 14 to 17. Sis­ters, who work in ru­ral and re­mote towns in NSW, Vic­to­ria, Queens­land and South Aus­tralia at­tended the con­fer­ence.

Speak­ers ad­dressed some is­sues of so­cial jus­tice for those liv­ing and work­ing in ru­ral ar­eas and en­cour­aged the Sis­ters to con­tinue their work in far flung and iso­lated places as well as in more pop­u­lated towns. A ses­sion on ‘self-care’ was well re­ceived by the Sis­ters who live busy lives in the ser­vice of oth­ers.
