 Josephite Principals Gather at Mary MacKillop Place

Mary MacKillop College is a member of the Association of Josephite Affiliated Secondary Schools (AJASS) across Australia and New Zealand. AJASS Principals recently met at Mary MacKillop Place at North Sydney for their annual conference. Our focus was on “Creating Hope with a Josephite Heart”. We heard from Congregational Leader Sr Monica Cavanagh rsj who inspired us to imagine renewed ways of communion with all through the Josephite spirit inspired by Jesus and lived through St Mary of the Cross MacKillop and Fr Julian Tennison Woods.

Sr Colleen O’Sullivan rsj led us in prayerful contemplation of our mission and Sr Connie rsj led us along the footsteps of Mary MacKillop through the Rocks area of Sydney.

As students, staff and families of Mary MacKillop College and in the Josephite spirit, we are called to keep hope alive and thriving in a world where messages of hate, disunity and fear of difference can threaten to overwhelm. We are called to do this inspired by Jesus who never shirked a challenge. We are called to do this inspired by St Mary MacKillop who, with faith and audacious pragmatism, created an educational legacy entrusted to us. It is sacred work that we are called to do.
