A call went out to teachers coming under the umbrella of Good Shepherd Partnership to join hands with the sisters in infusing the Charism of the Good Shepherd.

 

Two sessions were conducted for teachers serving in our schools in the Colombo Region by resource personnel Sr. Francine Muthugala, Province Leader, Sr. Celinta Fernando, Provincial Councillor and Fr. Darrel Coonge of Supuwath Arana.

 

The 1st session was at held at St. Bridget’s Convent on 20th April 2015 and was attended by the staff of St. Bridget’s Convent and St. Lawrence’s Convent. The 2nd was at Supuwath Arana on 21st April for the staff of Good Shepherd Convent, Kotahena, Good Shepherd Convent, Panadura and Ave Maria Convent, Negombo.

 

The main objective of these sessions was “A Call for Mission Partnership”. Considering the Province as a whole there are as many as one thousand or more mission partners who are serving as educationists. It was important to share with them the Charism of the Good Shepherd and share ways and means of inculcating first in themselves and then in the hearts of our children and parents Good Shepherd Values.

 

We were happy to note that the participants enjoyed these sessions and was fully appreciated. It also gave them an opportunity to meet and get acquainted with their colleagues from different Good Shepherd Schools. At the conclusion of these sessions a large committee comprising 5 representatives each from the participatory schools was formed. The responsibility of this committee is to co-ordinate the whole group in future activities promoting mission partnership.
