Liturgy, Prayer and Reflection
The Mary MacKillop Chapel provides a peaceful and inspirational atmosphere where people can withdraw from the noise and rush of the city to spend some time in quiet reflection and prayer.
Celebrating the Birthday of Saint Mary MacKillop
Each year on the birthday of St Mary MacKillop is celebrated at All Saints Church, King William Street, Fitzroy at 10.00am Mass, on the Sunday before, or immediately after the 15th January. Mass is followed by a light lunch and the cutting of the birthday cake in the church hall. All are welcome to attend.
Visitors to the Chapel at MMHC where Mary MacKillop often prayed are welcome to write in the folder provided, their prayer requests through the intercession of St Mary of the Cross.
Each week the pages containing the prayer requests, are forwarded to North Sydney and placed near the grave of St Mary MacKillop in the Chapel at MacKillop Place.
Commencing on Ash Wednesday with Eucharist and distribution of ashes, a Lenten reflection is offered each Wednesday during the Lenten season in the Mary MacKillop Chapel from 12.30pm to 1.00pm.
These reflections are open to the public and provide a valuable opportunity to stop and reflect on the significance of this season of the Church year as we prepare for the Easter season.
Each Wednesday during the season of Advent, an Advent reflection is offered in the Mary MacKillop Chapel from 12.30pm to 1.00pm.
The Advent reflections are open to the public and provide a valuable opportunity to stop and reflect on the importance of this season of the Church year as we prepare for the Christmas season.
