The love of Christ must come before all else.
Module 6: Good Samaritan Benedictine Spirituality

Fran Nolan SGS

Good Samaritan Benedictine spirituality is inspired by the Parable of the Good Samaritan and the wisdom of the Rule of St Benedict. Through John Bede Polding’s vision, and the faithful commitment of the Sisters, it has flourished in communities in urban, rural and remote areas of Australia and across the Asia Pacific region since 1857.
