From the Principal
St Mary of the Cross MacKillop
Pope Francis once called for all people of goodwill to “live fully, to choose to leave
a mark.” This is something that Mary MacKillop indelibly did, transforming the lives of the poor and those most in need, when she, and the Sisters of Saint Joseph, opened the schools that went on to create the foundation of education in this country today. Let us all leave our mark, by following her example in creating a better world through the gift of education.
Mary MacKillop Prayer
Ever generous God,
You inspired Saint Mary MacKillop
To live her life faithful to the Gospel of Jesus Christ and constant in
bringing hope and encouragement
to those who were disheartened, lonely or needy.
With confidence in your generous providence and through the
intercession of Saint Mary MacKillop
We ask that our faith and hope be fired afresh by the Holy Spirit so
that we too, like Mary MacKillop, may live with courage, trust and
Ever generous God hear our prayer.
We ask this through Jesus Christ. Amen.
