PROMINENT members of the Gladstone community this week met over tea and scones to farewell Sister Beryl Amedee.

An integral part of the religious landscape in central Queensland, the Catholic nun helped pioneer religious education in Catholic schools across the diocese.

Sr Beryl's time in Gladstone has been dedicated to harmonising world religions practising in the community, stimulating interfaith dialogue.

"We work with world religions to promote the common good of all," she said.

"Essential to the principle of common good for all is peace, harmony and goodwill."

Sister Beryl said her choice to become a nun had enabled her to travel the world.

"I studied a masters degree at Fordham University in New York, which opened the door to a host of different ministries," she said.

Having travelled to Africa, Turkey, Armenia and Rome, Sister Beryl's next stop is the Jensson Spirituality Centre in Melbourne.
