An invitation from the Sisters of St Joseph of the Sacred Heart (the Josephites)

The canonisation of St Mary MacKillop as Australia's first saint on October 17th has a special significance for us in Ireland. Mary MacKillop's name is well known to many Irish families who gave their daughters to the life and mission of the Sisters of St Joseph in Australia and New Zealand. Mary MacKillop's visit to Ireland in 1874 saw the beginning of a significant contribution from Ireland to the people of God in Australia and New Zealand. For this they rejoice and give thanks!

The Sisters of St Joseph would be delighted if you could join them to give thanks for the life of St Mary MacKillop and those who joined her as Sisters of St Joseph from many parts of Ireland.

The Mass to celebrate the Canonisation of St Mary Of the Cross MacKillop at St John's Cathedral Limerick November 7th 2010 at 12 noon.

All Welcome
