Local members of the Marist Association came together on the evening of the 28th of November for our final gathering for 2018.
Proceedings began with the Advent Prayer, held in the Somerton Park community chapel. This was led by Brother Graham Neist who generously made himself available for the occasion. Graham drew upon the writings of Richard Rohr (from the Franciscan tradition) and James Findlay (Cistercian tradition) to offer some deep and thought provoking insights to aspects of Advent.
After the prayer, we all gathered together in the Brothers’ dining room for drinks and finger food. Our thanks to the Adelaide Marist Association committee for organising the evening, to Graham for taking the time to be with us, and for the Somerton community for hosting the occasion.
Those present for the gathering:
Brothers Greg McCrystal, Ambrose Reilly, Pat McInerney, Jordan Redden, Michael Green, and Joe Hughes; Jim Jolley and his wife Catherine, Paul Teisseire, Chris Burke and Tamara Smith.
There were a number of apologies, which included: James Gill, Steve Byrne, Maddy Forde and Mary Hyland, and there were others who were unable to be present due to other commitments at the time.
Br Greg Hugh
