COUNTDOWN … OUR SINGLE MINISTRY
Pray with us for Saint Mary’s blessings on the transformational change ahead.
We are on the cusp of an historic moment.
On 1st July 2018, the Mary MacKillop Foundation will join with Mary MacKillop International and the Josephite Foundation to form a powerful single ministry: Mary MacKillop Today.
The uniting of these three ministries into one is the culmination of many years of prayerful deliberation and planning. It will intensify the impact of each outreach by reducing administrative overheads and concentrating resources where they can best meet the needs of the poorest of the poor.
As a single ministry proudly continuing the works of the Sisters of Saint Joseph in the spirit of Australia’s first Saint, Mary MacKillop Today will support our existing Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Tertiary Scholarships and Community Grants, along with international aid programs for local communities throughout Timor-Leste, Peru, Fiji, and Papua New Guinea, as well as No Interest Loan Schemes in regional New South Wales.
As Sister Monica Cavanagh commented when she wrote to our supporters in September (read here):
“The Sisters of St Joseph are determined to ensure that the wonderful work that Mary MacKillop Foundation does with your help, continues to expand in its reach and impact in the years ahead. Please be assured your support will continue to be directed specifically to the projects you know and love.”
Rest assured that your personal support will continue to be directed specifically to the areas of need that you know and love. To help us continue Mary’s legacy, please consider making a donation online or call us on 02 8912 2720.
