Year of Mercy:Illuminating Life Gathering 2016
In April, 2016, Townsville Catholic Education hosted a Diocesan wide gathering called Year of Mercy: Illuminating Life 2016. This creative and vibrant gathering was delivered in early April at the Townsville Entertainment Centre. The gathering was attended by over 1,600 staff and featured keynote addresses by Fr Daniel O’Leary, Sr Biddy Rose, Fr Richard Leonard, Kristina Kenneally and Fr Steve Bevans. A feature of the two-day event was the silent presence of the statue of Homeless Jesus. You can find out more about this special event at the webpage below:
