In July Br Michael presented a workshop at a wonderful conference conducted by the Catholic Education Office Melbourne 'Be Witnesses of God's Mercy'. Br Michael taught many of his chants composed around the theme of Mercy to a group of RE teachers. All attendees at the conference also received a CD 'Come to the Table Yr A' which will be useful for next year. (photo)
