Eileen welcomed us.
Bobby Moore introduced himself and said he was going to be the host of our conversation and told us that it has been said that the quality of the outcome of a meeting depended on the clarity of the intention of each participant. He then asked us to reflect in silence for a couple of minutes on our own intentions for this meeting and invited us to an imaginary cocktail party! We moved around the room and shared our intentions with one other Sister, then a second and a third before we shared in the big group. The overall intentions were for openness, new conversations, getting to know each other better and listening to what God is calling us to.
Then it was real party time as it is Eileen’s birthday today! We retired into the Smiley lounge and Drumalis produced a beautiful cake!
