Sr Mary Wright ibvm visits Brisbane

7th Apr 2014

Canon Law … 

On Saturday, 5 April, about 40 delegates from Mercy Partners ministries and other Apostolic Public Juridic Persons gathered at Robertson Gardens, Sunnybank to work with Canon Lawyer, Sr Mary Wright ibvm, and engage in some of the intricacies of Canon Law which apply to our apostolate.

Delegates represented the variety of ministries in health, community and aged care and education. The workshops allowed us to delve into the canons and draw on Mary Wright’s extensive experience in this area. Mary’s easy, relaxed style allowed for a high level of interaction, and everyone went away armed with a new appreciation of the way in which we in our various capacities may protect the ministries which contribute positively to our local community and the wider society.
