Celebrating 130 years of Mercy presence in South Australia (Australia)
This year marks the 130th anniversary of the arrival of the Sisters of Mercy in South Australia from Argentina and the foundation of St Aloysius College in Adelaide.
On their arrival in Adelaide, the Sisters were welcomed by Mother Mary MacKillop, foundress of the Sisters of St Joseph, who graciously offered them accommodation at the Kensington Convent. Mary MacKillop made available to the Sisters of Mercy an established Josephite school in Russell Street in the city, so that they could make their first contribution to education in South Australia.
Speeches by Judith Redden rsm, Principal of St Aloysius and of Rear Admiral Kevin Scarce AC CSC RANR, Governor of South Australia are online.
