Testimonials

“The eConferences presented by The Broken Bay Institute have been one of the more creative initiatives in the area of faith formation in Australia.  Archbishop Mark Coleridge, Archbishop of Brisbane eConference testimonial
They have also made their mark beyond our shores.
That speaks of the need for what they offer – a deeper knowledge and love of Scripture and Tradition and the Lord who lies at the heart of both. It also speaks of the need to make effective use of digital technology in offering the Good News to the Church and the world.
These DVDs allow people who were not part of the original eConferences to share the experience; they also allow those who took part to refresh the experience.
I recommend them to everyone at a time like this, when we need to reach down in order to reach out, to learn more in order to speak more powerfully.” 
– Archbishop Mark Coleridge, Archbishop of Brisbane


Bishop Michael Putney"One of the great contributions to the faith formation for the Church in Australia have been the eConferences delivered by The Broken Bay Institute...I highly recommend these DVDs as a resource to help enrich the faith life of our Catholic community."
– The Late Bishop Michael Putney

“We had 20 participants at Dominican Sisters, Rosary Lodge site. We had a wonderful day together. As facilitator, it was hard to stop them talking! There were so many “aha!” moments and connections being made with life as it was, and life as it should be. A huge topic presented in an effective way. Thanks to each presenter! And to the organizers – a thousand thanks!”

“Yes a day full of treasures! I can only imagine what would have gone into getting this event up and running. Congratulations to all involved... I participated in the e-event alone at home in a little country town in Victoria and was particularly enriched by the depth of Bishop Michael's resonant stability/'at homeness' in what this year is all about in its simplistic holiness and fullness of relational unknowingness. I come away feeling gifted and blessed. May you all feel blessed in return.”
