Celebrating 10 years of St Mary MacKillop’s Sainthood

St Mary MacKillop was canonised by Pope Benedict XVI in Rome on October 17, 2010.

About 9000 Australians travelled to Rome to celebrate the occasion.

Ten years on, the Sisters of Saint Joseph are inviting Australians to reflect on what the canonisation of Australia’s first saint meant to them then and now.

The theme chosen for this celebration is “Take Fresh Courage”. This theme, reflecting the many challenges Australians have faced in 2020 , is taken from a letter written by St Mary MacKillop in 1877.
