St Mary of the Cross MacKillop Feast Day

On 8th August we celebrated the Solemnity of Saint Mary of the Cross MacKillop.

Four of our Year 6 students represented our school, as over 60 Brisbane Catholic Education schools processed through the cathedral to start the mass.

During his homily Archbishop Mark Coleridge spoke of how Mary ‘was more about actions than words, she would get ‘stuff’ done with mud on her boots and her sleeves rolled, Mary saw to siding with the disadvantaged and doing God’s work while providing an educational setting for many children’.

What a great saint to aspire to live like!
