Townsville Mission Trip

Kate Freeman joins forces with the MGL's (Sisters Therese & Rosie, Fathers Steve & Chris and Brother Baiju) for an awesome 12-day mission trip to Townsville.

The team assisted the one and only Joni McCourt (Indigenous Catholic Council) in running a 4-day Indigenous Youth Retreat on Magnetic Island; visiting and running a session in the Townsville Youth Detention Centre; speaking and rapping (Fr Chris) at 'Theology in the Tavern'; speaking on 'vocations' at a highschool; running the local Indigenous Youth Group; running a day for high-school age youth and speaking and ministering at the Yona Shalom prayer group.

The team also spent some recreation time together which consisted of quad bikes, swimming and tubing! 

We were also in the Diocese at the time of Bishop Michael's passing. May he rest in peace, our prayers and thoughts are with the people of Townsviile. We have greatly loved working alongside Bishop Michael and know that he will be truly missed.
