'The Other Marys' Webinar

Melbourne-born Mary MacKillop founded the Sisters of Saint Joseph in the 1800s to work ‘wherever there was a need.’
Mary Ward was a sixteenth century Yorkshirewoman, born at a time of conflict for Catholics in England, who, inspired by the Society of Jesus, devoted herself to active ministry.
 
The two Marys were both pioneering women of their time, forging new ways for women to live the religious life.
The event will look at their lives and missions, and reflect on their legacy for women today.
 
Opening Message, sent from His Eminence Cardinal Kevin Farrell, Prefect of the Dicastery for Laity, the Family and Life.
