The records relate to children who were placed in orphanages and children’s homes established in Victoria by the Sisters of Mercy, the Christian Brothers and the Sisters of St Joseph.
This collection of records dates from 1857.
The paper looks at MacKillop's methods of working in the present, alongside the impact and learning of the past.
This presentation on MacKillop's work with former residents, including Forgotten Australians, was delivered at the conference ?Saint Mary MacKillop: Her influence on Catholic social service?.
MacKillop Family Services acknowledges the Traditional Custodians and their Elders in each of the Communities where we work.
