Juanita and her sibling Rosie, a Triple Certificate Midwife who came to Railaco on the Recent St Canice’s Immersion Tour

I am recently returned from Railaco, East Timor, where I was privileged to be one of the participants on the first ever “immersion trip” organised for parishioners and friends from St Canice’s parish in Sydney.

The purpose of this trip was to visit the Mission, meet the people, and see first-hand the work that we have been supporting.

And amongst many interesting questions, one that was raised and that I will attempt to address first is:

As my religious affiliation is non-Catholic, why am I a donor to this Jesuit humanitarian project?

Well, after reflecting in my ‘Examen’, (an exercise from Ignatian Spirituality that we were all exposed to on some evenings, and with some suited to ‘engage more deeply than others), I share my thoughts.
