MARY MACKILLOP FEAST DAY– 8 AUGUST 2013

The Feast Day of St Mary of the Cross MacKillop was celebrated at St Anne’s Church on 8 August with the children from St Anne’s Primary School who had Sr Jose` pray with them. Sr Jose` is the Pastoral Associate for our Parish, and she is also part of the order established by Mary MacKillop, the Sisters of St Joseph. It was very special to have her celebrate this special feast day with the parishioners and children from our school. Mary MacKillop being the first Australian Saint is remembered for her devotion to helping those in need. As related to todays Gospel where Jesus says, “happy those servants if he (the Master) finds them ready…” Mary MacKillop certainly served her Master by serving those in need. May we remember the goodness of Mary MacKillop and be inspired to do the same.
