IFM praise for Mary – First Disciple E Conference


The staff of the Institute For Mission (IFM) joined with thousands throughout Australia and internationally for the Mary – First Disciple E Conference on Tuesday 18 May.

IFM, the Catholic Diocese of Parramatta’s Centre for Catholic Adult Faith Formation, was one of the Diocese’s ‘e-sites’ for the conference, taking the opportunity to hear one of the world’s leading Scripture scholars, Fr Frank Moloney SDB, speak on Mary as disciple, woman and mother.

Director of IFM, Sister Maria Bongiorno IBVM, said those taking part at IFM gained greatly from hearing Fr Moloney’s insights, and through the lively discussion which took place as the E Conference unfolded.

Sr Maria said that when the DVD of the E Conference becomes available, IFM will add it to its Library collection for use of all in the Diocese.
