A group of 30 women discussed faith, life and womanhood during the Parramatta Diocese’s of Parramatta’s At the Well online gathering last week.
Participants were able to ask questions about life, faith, careers and vocation to three guest panellists – Joy Adan, Danica D’Souza and Stephanie Musgrave.
One of the questions the panel was asked was how do they managed to balance their faith and living in our modern society.
Ms D’Souza, a certified dietitian, explained said she felt she was living in two different worlds growing up, but that she is blessed to have found a group of Catholic women who can guide her through her struggles.
Ms Adan, a podcaster, content journalist and mother of two, said she is passionate about encouraging women to understand that they are women of God.
The panel were asked how they remained hopeful that their vocation is meant for them despite all the difficulties of lockdown.
Ms Musgrave, head of primary at Santa Sophia Catholic College in Box Hill in Sydney, said she was meant to be married during this period of lockdown.
“During this time of lockdown, I’ve learnt patience and I’ve learnt to trust in God and the way that God loves me,” she said.
“God’s plans are so much richer than we can ever think of, and I know that’s what will get me through these times. God knows better than what I could ever plan, so I just need to let God do his thing,” she said.
