Fear, Manuel and Supper

Due to Covid-19, I've become more aware that the future is not ours to own. At the moment it seems like we are trying to wrap our heads around what is happening. Many of us feel like sporadically crying while we sit on the back porch in our PJ’s thinking, 'how did this happen?' 
However, at the the same time I've been seeing explosions of creativity, charity & kindness really is starting to shine through.

Resources for Nourishment 

Amidst the Covid-19 outbreak I've been hearing a need for new ways to maintain spiritual nourishment. Therefore, I hope this list of digital resources may be helpful. Please feel free to share the list and get in touch if there are any other good resources that you know of too.

New Video Series

Over the past few months I have been scanning photos, recording, listening, learning new software and processing footage. All with a goal to tell the story of the Sisters of Saint Joseph at MSJ Milperra (my current ministry). This has been to celebrate and honour 60 years of Josephite education at MSJ. It's been a huge learning curve and a privilege. We just released Episode #01 with 10 more to come over the coming weeks (they are works in progress). Enjoy!

Rules for Life + Pop Art

Continuing with the 60's theme - I have discovered a thought provoking list titled 'Some Rules for Students and Teachers'. Move over Andy Warhol and meet celebrated artist / educator Sister Corita Kent. She created this list as part of a project for a class she taught (1967-68). It's well worth a read.

I Will Survive

This rendition of 'I Will Survive' is a little something especially for teachers going online in the midst of Covid-19. It's hilarious and well worth 3 minutes of your time. "I... I will survive... as long as i know how to zooooom I know i'll be alive..."
