Mary MacKillop: ‘… a dazzling star in the firmament of feminism’  – with journalist Samela Harris, historian Denise Schumann and Mary Ryan rsj, Co-ordinator of Mary MacKillop Precinct Adelaide

Mary MacKillop was an extraordinary Australian who reached out to the poor and the disenfranchised in 19th century society. She believed in the dignity of all human beings regardless of gender, class or race and was prepared to challenge orthodox beliefs in the pursuit of social justice. Outlawed by the Catholic Church, she is now held up by the same Church as a model of courage and selflessness.

Don’t miss this opportunity to muse over the legacy of Mary MacKillop in this forum.
