Australia's new saint - Blessed Mary MacKillop

Brave, courageous, determined.....some of the words used to describe the first canonised saint from Australia, Blessed Mary MacKillop. The canonisation will take place on October 17th 2010.

Blessed Mary co-founded the Sisters of Saint Joseph of the Sacred Heart with Julian Tenison Woods in 1866 know affectionatly as the Brown Joey's. We congratulate our local Josephite sisters and look forward to speaking with them in the near future closer to the canonisation in Rome.
