Australian Gathering, 15/09/2012

The Sisters gathered for our Governance Circle Meeting on 15th September.  

Catherine White commenced the meeting with a prayer segment on Cosmology.  This was to also introduce the sisters to a report on the Extended General Council Forum which was held in Canada.

The end of the financial year accounts were presented to the Sisters. This gave a background to the findings and recommendations of the Property Review Committee.

 The external committee of three men visited our properties and examined data on rental properties as well as our Retirement facility Delamore and the units that we own there


The chair of the Committee Maurie Burke, presented the report assisted by the other two committee members, Pat Condon and Paul Hotchkis. 

With an ageing population it was recommended that we centralise services for Sisters needing more care and assistance in carrying out daily tasks. It was recommended that this could best be accomplished at Kedron where we have a variety of living situations and a 24 hour carer at Delamore. 

Renovations are presently being carried out to make Kedron a more user friendly place for older Sisters
