Mary MacKillop: A Star in the Firmament of Feminism
Mary MacKillop was an extraordinary Australian who reached out to the poor and disenfranchised in nineteenth-century society. She believed in the dignity of all humans 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 with journalist Samela Harris, Mary MacKillop Precinct Director Mary Ryan, historian Denise Schumann and compere Peter Goers. All welcome.
