Missionary Sisters of Service making an impact out on the highways and byways
Tuesday 10th March 2020 was a history-making moment in the life of Highways and Byways: A Community of Service and the Missionary Sisters of Service (MSS). They launched their first ever longer-term program of community support, ‘Seeds of Connection, a partnership with Megan Brown of Chandra Yoga and Wellbeing in Roma, Queensland and supported by Jen Coggan of Injune.
The launch consisted of a wonderful morning of passion, inspiration and connection as more than 50 community members gathered at Chandra Yoga and Wellbeing to hear more of the program and to witness the commissioning of Megan and Jen as partners with Highways and Byways - A Community of Service by Emeritus Bishop Bill Morris.
Liz McAloon, Executive Officer of Highways and Byways expressed thanks to Tallis Landers for a beautiful Welcome to Country, to Emeritus Bishop Bill Morris, to Megan and Jen and all those community members of Roma who brought this program to reality. "A coral gum planted on the day will grow and stand strong in Roma for years to come and we hope our program will too."

In other MSS/ Highways and Byways news, the annual John Wallis Foundation lecture was held in Toowoomba on International Women's Day, Sunday 8th March. Lindy Chamberlain-Creighton was the guest speaker, addressing more than 300 people in St Therese's church in Toowoomba.
Lindy spoke passionately of the power of forgiveness, her deep faith and how we cope with what life throws our way. "It's not what happens to you that matters - its how you handle what happens to you and how you choose to face it," Lindy said.
Formerly known as the John Wallis Foundation, Highways and Byways – A Community of Service was established in 2019 by the Missionary Sisters of Service to continue their vision and mission into the future.
