Connected through Christ and the bonds of love, friendship and Sisterhood community
Welcome! It is so lovely to be with you virtually this weekend :)
Over the course of the weekend we will be sending you a few emails with a link to this private page of our website.
On this page we will be posting a total of 8 videos. Some of these will be personal messages from our team and a couple of our speakers, two keynote talks from previous Sisterhood events and links to some really great resources.
We are praying for you all.
Stay safe, be blessed and we can't wait to be with you later in the year.
Much love, virtual hugs and prayers

A message from Guest speaker Alyssa Agius
We look forward to hearing Alyssa's story later in the year but in the meantime please check out her band The Saga. The Saga is a very talented Melbourne based pop duo who produce songs of meaning and hope.
During this time of isolation reach out and support local artists by purchasing some of their merchandise.
A message about being in the present moment by Jonathan Doyle
Apart from being married to Karen (our co founder) for 19 years, Jonathan is a great friend of the Sisterhood movement. In this video message Jonathan encourages us to draw close to God by being in the present moment of each day.
If you like this message and would like to receive more encouragement and motivation you can suscribe to the daily podcast. You can do this on Spotify and iTunes.
Finding God in Every Season - A talk by Sr Mary Sarah
Finding God is every season was the theme of the retreats hosted by The Sisterhood movement and The Dominican Sisters last year. These local retreats were held in Sydney, Melbourne, Canberra, Brisbane and Adelaide.
The Dominican Sisters of St Cecilia Nashville Tennessee have become dear friends of the Sisterhood movement and have formed a central part of the Sisterhood movement over the past 12 years that we have been hosting conferences. Their charism for teaching and breaking open deep spiritual truths in a way that relates to both the practical and spiritual dimension of life is a gift we treasure.
This talk was given by Sr Mary Sarah at the Canberra retreat in 2019.
A Message From Team Member Zenka Taffe
A Message from speaker Sr Rosie Drum
Sr Rosie Drum is a sister with the Missionaries of God's Love. The Missionaries of God's Love are close friends of the Sisterhood movement. We deeply value their contribution, support and heart of service. They have been such a blessing to so many women at the conferences over the years through pastoral care and prayer. We are so grateful for their contribution.
A talk by Darlene Zschech
At the Arise Sisterhood Conference in 2018 we were so blessed to have Darlene as our guest speaker. Darlene is the song writer of the world famous worship song Shout to the Lord. She is a passionate lover of Jesus and lives to worship him in all that she does.
We thought we would share her talk with you as she focuses on hope and being a company of women who will announce hope to others.
We pray that you would be blessed as you listen to Darlene.

Stay safe, be blessed and may the Anointing of the Lord be upon you.
Much love and prayers
