The topic was the importance of authentic Friendships at the last Theology Hour on Friday 13 May 2022 at ACU Blacktown Campus.
Over 30 young adults gathered to connect and listen to the wisdom offered by Br Bernard Mary Fonkalsrud OFM Conv, based at Our Lady of the Rosary Parish, Kellyville.
Br Bernard Mary reminded the audience that no man is an island and that all people are called to communion and, therefore, it is important to surround yourself with people who desire the best for you. Drawing in the likes of Aristotle, he offered the audience insight into how to begin understanding types of friendships and encouraged ongoing reflection on how to be a good friend to others.
The evening was enhanced by the musical talent of Our Lady, Queen of Peace Parish, Greystanes young adult and ACU Campus Minister, Paolo Grella.
