FSA will welcome Fr Dan Horan OFM back to our shores in 2023.
This travelling scholar program is instead of our normal biannual conference. Therefore, FSA will be looking to our FSA school members and other community participants to engage with and support the tour with attendance and registration payment.
Working in concert with schools and communities FSA will co-create programs and offer logistical support to animate the programs and events. No school will be alone.
DATES: 20 July – 10 August 2023.
At this stage Fr Dan will travel to three hubs on the East coast of Australia.
- Thursday 20 July 2023 – Wednesday 26 July 2023 – QLD
- Thursday 27 July 2023 – Wednesday 02 August 2023 – NSW
- Thursday 03 August 2023 – Wednesday 10 August 2023 – VIC
