CANONISATION OF BLESSED MARY OF THE CROSS MACKILLOP ANNOUNCED

Following the Public Consistory held in the Apostolic Palace, the Holy See has announced that Blessed Mary of the Cross MacKillop will be formally Canonised along with five other Beati, at a ceremony to be held on Sunday 17th October, 2010.

The very first Australian Saint - praise God for the gift of her life and her work and fidelity in the Church in this Great South Land of the Holy Spirit. Let us pray that her Sisters of Saint Joseph may begin the work of conforming their present lives in every way to the letter and the spirit of their saintly Foundress.
