Each year on the 8th of August we celebrate the Solemnity of Saint Mary of the Cross MacKillop, Australia’s beloved first saint and patron saint of our Archdiocese. On this day, we celebrate the important role she played in making education accessible for children in our country. Mary MacKillop devoted her life to ensuring a holistic Catholic education for children from rural, poor families.

St Mary MacKillop’s impact on Australian education was remarkable.  She was a trailblazer and a leader who passionately advocated for the education of underprivileged children and children in remote areas where others either would or could not go.  For such children and their families, Mary opened a door of hope into the future.

To honour her legacy and seek her intercession, we invite you to join us for Mass at 10.30am on Thursday, 8 August 2024 at the Cathedral of St Stephen followed by morning tea.
