Faith Facts

Week 3 - August 8 - 12 (Green)









8-St MARY OF THE CROSS known as  St Mary MacKillop




10-St Lawrence, deacon, martyr

11-St Clare



St Mary of the Cross - Australia’s first saint.
St Mary of the Cross also known as Saint Mary MacKillop made several visits, by ship, to New Zealand from 1894- 1902.  In 1897 she stayed for some time with the sisters in Arrowtown while travelling in Otago and Southland. 
A woman of faith, courage and vision. Mary McKillop had an impact in New Zealand with her Sister’s founding and working throughout New Zealand and in Otago. We are waiting for our own Suzanne Aubert to be made New Zealand’s first saint.

Saint Clare of Assisi was a good friend of Saint Francis of Assisi, who our Pope Francis is named after. After hearing Saint Francis speaking about Jesus, Saint Clare wanted to devote her entire life to God. At first, her family did not respect her decision, however she stood by her decision because she truly loved God. In time, some members of her family joined her in her religious lifestyle.

St Clare of Assisi - Patron of eye disease, goldsmiths, laundry, television

God Bless
