Meeting of the Mary Ward Education Network (MWEN) steering group in Rome

During the week beginning 10 June a MWEN steering group, born out of the 2017 Mary Ward Education Conference in Pretoria, came together in Rome to look at ways of continuing and developing collaboration and networking and sharing of resources among the hundreds of Mary Ward schools worldwide, and in particular the implementation of the Mary Ward Schools Compass developed at the Pretoria Conference.  The Compass is shown below:
Those present were, from left:
Ann O’Donoghue (Ireland), Anne Muirhead (Australia), Estela Grignola (Argentina), Jane Livesey (CJ General Superior), Annette Haseneder (Germany), Noelle Corscadden (IBVM General Superior), Teresa Clemente (Spain).
Sadly the two remaining members of the group Lucy Nderi from Kenya and Margaret Mary Vettikappallil from Nepal were unable to make the meeting.  Their absence made a difference to the meeting as all were aware that they represented large sections of the Mary Ward Education Network and those present were very mindful of that.
