AMSSA Conference

"Mercy: Pathways of Joy and Hope" is our theme for the AMSSA Student Conference 2024 to be held in Central Victoria from Tuesday 25 to Thursday 27 June.

Catherine McAuley College Bendigo and Sacred Heart College Kyneton are delighted to host students and staff in beautiful Central Victoria and the Macedon Ranges.

The conference theme encapsulates the belief that mercy is the guiding light that illuminates the journey towards a world filled with joy, hope, and compassion. Our mercy path was first laid out by Catherine McAuley and her sisters in the streets of Dublin. Illuminating the light of mercy, the ‘walking sisters’ brought hope and joy to those who needed it most.

Through engaging workshops, inspiring speakers, and collaborative discussions, delegates will discover the power of compassion to create positive change. Opportunities for personal growth, formation and development are woven throughout the conference program, and times for stillness, reflection and prayer will deepen delegates’ appreciation of the Mercy charism.

Inspired by Catherine McAuley’s words, “we should be shining lamps, giving light to all around us,” we’ll explore how acts of mercy illuminate the path towards joy and nurture hope within ourselves and our communities.
