Our Theme – ‘To Fatima and back again’
Oceania Couple Chris and John Dighton led the Oceania delegation of 43 Teams people, including two spiritual counsellors, to the International Gathering of the movement held in Fatima last July. The six-day event was attended by 9,000 people from around 80 countries.
But what has that event got to do with us Teams people in Australia who weren’t there? This is one of the questions that Chris and John will address in their talk.
Other questions they will address include:
- What was the message of the International Gathering that all Teams people need to know about?
- What contribution can an International Gathering make to the life of Teams in Australia?
- What new initiatives are Teams developing, especially in relation to young couples and elderly people?
- What did they learn or discover at the Gathering that has enriched their own life in Teams and/or their own spirituality?
Woven into the day will be a opportunities for people to pray together as couples, to have a time to talk together, and to come up with a plan for how they will contribute to the life of their Team this year.
The day will conclude with the commissioning of Responsible Couples for 2019.
All Vic-East Members and Responsible Couples/Persons are invited to come along and join in the day.
There is no cost for the day; however, you are asked to bring a plate to share for lunch.
