Josephite, Sister Margaret Cleary, was recently awarded a Medal of the Order of Australia “for service to the Catholic Church of Australia." Sr Margaret was born in Brisbane's Fortitude Valley and was educated by the sisters in Nundah's Josephite heartland! Sr Margaret said:
“Mary MacKillop has been and is, such a wonderful inspiration of living life to the full, embracing as blessings, the joys, challenges and sorrows in life with extraordinary faith and trust in her 'good' God whose love for all was shown in her love, openness, courage, inclusivity and deep respect for every person regardless of creed, culture or background."
Congratulations, Sr Margaret. You are a true MacKillop Woman!
