We invite you to reflect with us on the magnificence of Creation and to seek forgiveness for our treatment of the gifts of Earth. This happens in many ways, such as over-consumption, waste and depletion of natural resources, all of which are considered in this new ABC series.


As Sisters of St John of God, our Chapter Call challenges us to ‘Gaze on the mystery of our evolving, changing universe’.
