A JOURNEY OF GROWTH FOR SELF AND FOR MISSION
2-week Programme for Sisters Preparing for Final Profession: 21 August to 4 September 2023 @ Good Shepherd Convent Restful Waters, Singapore
On 20 August 2023, we warmly welcomed Sr Faustina, Sr Rose, Sr Bernadette and Sr Francesca to Singapore. It felt like a heartfelt homecoming as they had all previously spent a year of international community experience with us in Singapore.
Joining them in this journey of Communion, Connectedness and Change were Sr Assumpta and Sr Myriam, who had arrived earlier to attend the “Winning Hearts and Minds Through Impactful Communication” programme.
The themes for the two-week programme included:
PERSONAL GROWTH FOR MISSION
- Personal integration of life experiences
- Listening and sharing of experiences, hopes, dreams, and challenges
- Weaving meaningful conversations
- Stages in personal growth
- Cultivating self-confidence
- Engaging in theological reflection
PARTICIPATIVE MODEL IN MISSION
- Exploring leadership
- Fostering teamwork
- Embracing partnership for mission
LIVING THE CHALLENGES OF RELIGIOUS LIFE IN MISSION TODAY
- Deepen the relationship with God and others
- Life in community
THE CALL OF JUSTICE TODAY
- Exploring Integral Ecology
- Building networks
This experience proved to be both enriching and life changing. Their zeal and commitment to the Good Shepherd Mission and the people they served were beyond doubt. The camaraderie among them, their eagerness to learn and their unwavering faith in God were truly remarkable.
We invite you to share in their two-week journey of personal growth through their reflections.
