Our Universal call to ‘deepen, share and go forth’

Margaret was involved in the beginning days of CLC in Brisbane. Noel and I conducted a week-end up there (not sure of exact year).
When she came to Sydney, she was working as a pastoral associate and guided a CLC group in Pymble for many years. Then she was a guide of a group in Glebe/Ryde until just a few years ago With the onset of dementia, Frances Browne IBVM supported her with the group which Mar-garet continued to attend even after she needed to go into supported accommodation.
Margaret was always a great advocate for CLC – always attending Guides meetings and most, if not all National Gatherings. She was also a mem-ber of the Formation Subcommittee of the NSW EXCO for many years and delivered Guides’ train-ing and worked on the development of the Com-ponents of the Meeting and CLC Handbook.
Margaret was also a great advocate for social justice. She was a long term member of Pax Christi and attended the monthly meetings of Netact with Ron Mulock as the CLC representa-tives of the NSW EXCO. Both of them were mem-bers of the Social Justice Subcommittee of the NSW EXCO and organised events with the home-less and men from Matt Talbot and also disabled people in care. These events were attended by other CLC members.
Margaret was a great stalwart, and greatly loved by all who knew her. God rest your soul, good and faithful servant.
