What better day than All Saints Day to visit Mary MacKillop Place in North Sydney. Four MLZ students with their teachers took the train from Mount Druitt to North Sydney to visit the sacred site where Saint Mary MacKillop lived, died and is buried.
The students enjoyed Blue Whale Theatre's production 'Mary, A Woman of Courage' which portrayed Mary's life in an interactive way, appreciated by young and old alike.
We then visited the chapel where we prayed around Mary's tomb and finished the morning with some healthy food from the cafe.
Our students now have a better understanding of Saint Mary's life and contribution to the young people of Australia. At MLZ, we conclude our brief prayer each day with the invocation... Mother Mary of the Cross, pray for us. We pray that Saint Mary will continue to touch the lives of our students, young people she would have been delighted to have in her schools.
