Quiet Mornings of Reflection 2016

Being quiet and reflective is part of a Christian’s vocation, duty and joy. We are to “Be still and know that I am God” (Psalm 46:10), indeed we might never know that God is God until we are still, quiet, attentive and listening in a way we have not done for a while. This is hard to do because we are not only busy, but have got used to our busyness and often wear it as an emblem of how busy we are… especially about God’s business.

The Cathedral has provided a number of days each year where we can be quiet and at ease in God’s presence. They were begun by Dean James Rigney in 2009 and will continue this year under the direction of Fr Glen Hughes and Fr Roger Sharr.  Fr Glen is the former Parish Priest of Scone, now working in the school chaplaincy program and Fr Roger is the former parish priest of St. James’ Morpeth and has recently retired. He is doing a Ph.D. at the University of Sydney.
