Brian & Patricia Stitt
In Dayspring's 20th Anniversary year the Guiding Committee decided that they wanted to honour the vision and passion of Brian and Patrician Stitt who, with the help of others, established the Dayspring Centre for Christian Spirituality & Counselling in 2001.
It was agreed that an appropriate way to do this would be to inaugurate an annual event at which a person of some eminence in the contemplative community would be invited to deliver an oration focusing on the contemplative life. We believe this will honour these two special people but also be a gift to the contemplative community in Western Australia that exists in the many WCCM groups, religious congregations and monastic communities and other gatherings of people interested in growing in the practice of contemplative exercises.
