Through a variety of life-giving ministries, Mary MacKillop Centres promote Mary MacKillop's life, work and spirituality.
These Centres are focal points for pilgrimage, learning and growth in the spiritual dimensions of life, hospitality, prayer and pastoral concern. People who visit these Centres celebrate the story and rich heritage of Mary MacKillop and the Sisters of St Joseph.
Mary MacKillop Place and the tomb of Mary MacKillop in the Mary MacKillop Memorial Chapel have become a place of pilgrimage as many people visit Mary’s tomb and the Museum. There is a Pastoral Care Team at Mary MacKillop Place, so some Sisters are always available to listen to pilgrims and visitors, and to provide support when needed. Mary MacKillop Museum provides educational opportunities for school children and others. Mary MacKillop Place also provides accommodation and conference facilities.
