She was a brave, faith-filled, and innovative woman.
Mother Mary was ahead of her time in many ways, and a woman of Gospel values in every way!
With almost 30,000 staff members across the Eastern seaboard in our Health and Education Ministries, we wish all of you a very happy feast day.
We hope today will afford you the opportunity for a quiet moment to reflect on the story that founded who we are, and perhaps a quiet moment to acknowledge your role in continuing that story and legacy today.
We, the Trustees of Mary Aikenhead Ministries, thank you for your commitment to serve in our organisations.
To all, both directly working in our Ministries or otherwise, we hope you find inspiration and celebration in the work of Mary Aikenhead Education Ltd and St Vincent’s Health Australia.
May this feast day be a reminder for you of the legacy entrusted to each of us by the Sisters of Charity, and may that be a source of hope, courage, and wisdom.
Wishing you many blessings.
Richard Haddock, Penelope Wright, Gary Humphrys, Peter Howard, Michael Drew, and Margaret McKenna
