McCormack Day: 21st May (the anniversary of Irene McCormack’s death)
McCormack House is named after Sister Irene McCormack, a Sister of St Joseph, who left the comforts of Australia and went to work with the less fortunate in Peru, providing them with food and spiritual comfort. Through her hard work, she forged friendships and overcame many obstacles. This sense of self-determination and a willingness to help those less fortunate was at the core of Mary MacKillop’s vision. Both women believed that human dignity was to be treasured.
