Liz is married with three adult children and two grandchildren. While Catholic in her DNA, Liz is much more than her DNA. She is a member of the Grail, a member at
Pitt St Uniting Church and a Spiritual Director with a passion for listening “among the fringes.” Liz is involved in weekend breakfasts for those living with homelessness, and follows this once a month with Food for the Soul at St Pats – an hour for reflective, contemplative circle sharing.More
Nour is a practicing physio who is passionate about health and living life to the full. Her childhood background in Lebanon during the war has made her
keenly aware of injustice in the world hence her attraction to the Grail which she sees as a haven of peace and deep listening and center for social justice action. She is co-ordinating the Australian Grail Fistula Project with a Masai community in Tanzania.More

Justice & Solidarity
Grail women are working for justice in areas such as trade agreements, the environment, refugee resettlement, human trafficking, overcoming poverty and giving the marginalised a voice.
Theology & Spirituality
Initially a Catholic movement, the Grail today is an ecumenical movement of women grounded in the Christian faith, and open to dialogue with women of other religious traditions while deepening our own.
Both locally and globally, the Grail tries to move towards its vision by forming connections with like-minded and like-spirited groups and individuals.
Grail centres provide a space for open discussion on important political, social, cultural and spiritual concerns, around which actions can take place.
