Mercy Partners Council Visits Townsville
Mercy Partners Council met in Townsville on Tuesday September 9, and hosted a Cocktail gathering for staff and Directors of the Boards of St Patrick’s College, Mater Health Services North Queensland and Mercy Community Services.
The Council, led by Acting Deputy Chair, Dr Ray Campbell (pictured at left along with MHSNQ Co-Chair Geraldine O'Brien and her husband John O'Brien), sees these regional events as an important element of its mission to support and encourage the local ministries.
The Council recognised the great work done by the ministries. The evening was also an opportunity from people from across the three ministries to meet and socialise. The Chairs of the Boards, Mrs Geraldine O’Brien, Sr Carmel King and Professor Sue McGinty (Deputy Chair) spoke enthusiastically about their ministries.
Mercy Partners presented each of the ministries with a framed embroidery of the Mercy Partners Cross – a representation of the cross of risen Jesus protecting the signature of Mercy Partners. Our special thanks go to Linda Souter from MHSNQ who kindly took photos of the evening.
