Hi Therese,

Its so nice to know so many friends around the world! It is to grow in oneself when we know one person. I learnt from people so much that every person in my life while I am walking towards. I am so very grateful to each everyone, amy be I cannot remember many names but I pray for each and everyone everyday.
I also believe that the world is round and moving. So once we desire someone to meet, I am so sure that I will that person sometimes, somewhere and somehow. It happened to me so many times in my life! It is really wonderful to think even how our desire is fulfilled when we really desire some something.
So we will meet one day face to face and have our life fully enjoying for the grace of the spirit.
Love to you. Rosie

Hello back Andrea!

Good to hear from you and thanks for the warm welcome. My trip to Manila -- which was my first to Asia -- was A+. I look forward to going back again. Besides there being lots of positive interest expressed in the work of Catherine of Siena College, it was an absolute pleasure connecting with so many dedicated and inspiring people.

Good suggestion about beginning a forum on Catherine College. I will do that. Is there a specific place where I should introduce it?

The main link to the College is here: www.catherineofsiena.net

In May, I will be moving from Canada to England, to begin focused work with the College (currently, I am doing it in my spare time.)

Jeane Peracullo shared that you are a lawyer. Me, too. Hope we can connect in person sometime soon.

Therese

Hello Therese. Welcome to Ecclesia of Women in Asia's forum in the worldwide web. How was your trip to Manila? I hope you were able to connect with educational institutions that can be cooperators of the Catherine of Siena on-line college. As I told you before, my alma mater, La Consolacion College in Bacolod City should be interested in women's studies.

Hope you can begin a forum post on the Catherine of Siena college. Many of EWA's members (participants of EWA conference, not just the ones who are members of this web forum) are hungry for what this on-line college has to offer. (BTW, I tried the link you sent in your old e-mail but this didn't work.)
