Timeline PhotosMary MacKillop’s story is a heartwarming tale that is especially precious for children 🙏

Mary was an ordinary Victorian farm girl who devoted her life to the service of God and did great things for Australian and New Zealand families. Many Australians can say that they too have felt the impact of the enormous work started by St. Mary of the Cross (MacKillop), having been educated or cared for, by the Sisters of Saint Joseph. She was noted for her trust in the providence of God and miracles of healing have been attributed to her.

Mary MacKillop died on the 8th of August 1909 in North Sydney where her tomb can be visited today. She was a wonderful woman who gave her life to God and to people in need and was declared Australia’s first Saint on the 17th of October 2010 by Pope Benedict XVI.
