Mary MacKillop Feast Day Celebration

“Never see a human need without doing something about.” – Mary MacKillop

In August, we celebrate the remarkable life of Mary MacKillop, Australia’s first Saint, and do something in her honour to help vulnerable children struggling with school.

MacKillop Family Services embodies Mary’s passion for social justice and concern for children who experience disadvantage. In keeping with her charism, we invite Parishes and schools to support MacKillop and commemorate her Feast Day in August.

Your Parish or school can:

  • Book a speaker from MacKillop.
  • Run a special appeal in support of MacKillop’s work to keep children engaged with education
