The program included a professional development day on Self Care. Amongst other topics, summarising and prioritising challenges; discussing the concept of self care; boundaries; understanding the neurological 'hooks' and resilience. 

Sr Jill presented on her time at the United Nations and the Consultation on the Status of Women. Reports were also received from each Congregation.  The days concluded with a Liturgy of Remembrance for those Sisters who had died since the Federation gathering in 2018.


On the last evening, sisters from around Sydney gathered for the Vigil Eucharist, followed by a meal together.
