The first State-based Wisdom Circle for MPJP Stewards (Trustees) was held on Monday 13 June 2022 in Perth. This two-hour meeting included prayer, a presentation from a former MPJP Steward, formative conversations and a meal. Eleven of the 14 Perth-based MPJP Stewards attended. Participants said that it helped them to deepen their understanding of their role, develop a sense of community and solidarity beyond individual MPJPs.
Additional Wisdom Circles will be held in Sydney (08 Sept), Melbourne (20 Oct) and Brisbane (03 Nov 2022).
