Eamonn Pollard, newly appointed Director Spirituality Ministry of the Sisters of Saint Joseph Spirituality Ministry.

Sr Monica Cavanagh and the Congregational Leadership Team of the Sisters of Saint Joseph are pleased to announce the appointment of Mr Eamonn Pollard to the newly created role of Director Spirituality Ministry.

The creation of this position supports the Congregation’s commitment to a more integrated approach to its spirituality ministry, recently evidenced by the refreshing of the Board of the Spirituality Ministry and decision to bring the various ministries under the oversight of that company.

Eamonn will, in the first instance, review the faith formation and spirituality programs available through the Spirituality and Heritage Centres and evaluate these in the light of Sisters of Saint Joseph priorities and contemporary needs. While initially under the direction of the Congregational Leadership Team, Eamonn will also work with the new Board to emerge the future vision of the Spirituality Ministry.

“Eamonn joins us from Edmund Rice Education Australia, where he held the position of Education Officer: Formation and Learning,” says Sr Monica. “He brings a wealth of experience in education and has worked directly in the areas of spirituality and faith formation for most of his adult life.”

A former principal of a Josephite school in Tasmania, Eamonn has a deep understanding of and firm commitment to the Josephite charism. He hopes to complete his PhD on the importance of spirituality to wellbeing in 2024.

The Congregational Leadership Team looks forward to Eamonn’s commencement in March 2024.
