On Thursday evening, 22 September, The Lay Centre hosted a study group of 18 people from the Faculty of Theology and Philosophy, Australian Catholic University (ACU). The participants were mainly lay postgraduate students, doing a master’s degree in theological studies. They are from various cities in Australia, as ACU is a multi-campus university and they work mainly in the field of education. The group is in Rome for two weeks and the unit title is “Spiritualty in the Christian Tradition.” The study group is led by Professors Jo Laffin and Maeve Heaney. Professor Heaney is a consecrated member of the Verbum Dei Missionary Fraternity. The Lay Centre hosted a short talk by its director, Donna Orsuto, followed by dinner and evening prayer for peace in the garden.
