For Parishes - Mary MacKillop Today

For Parishes

Mary MacKillop Today is the flagship ministry of the Sisters of St Joseph in the footsteps of Australia’s first Saint. We work with communities in Timor-Leste, Peru, Papua New Guinea, Fiji, and Australia following in Saint Mary’s footsteps to partner with local people and provide opportunities in education, healthfinancial inclusion and livelihoods.

Mary MacKillop Today invites your parish to be a part of ‘Mary’s Community’ and build life for hundreds of thousands of people throughout the world.
