With the extended Melbourne COVID-19 lockdown announced by the Victorian government on Monday, 16th August, Mary MacKillop Heritage Centre is temporarily closed until further notice.

The Sisters, staff & volunteers continue to pray for and reflect on the needs of all our many friends, regular guests & visitors during these challenging times. Like St Mary of the Cross MacKillop and Father Julian Tenison Woods who together co-founded the Sisters of St Joseph, we too place our faith and trust in God and in the Australian people.

We look forward to welcoming you back to our sacred place as soon as we’re able. If you have any queries please do not hesitate to contact us via email

Be kind to one another and stay safe. Pray to St Mary of the Cross MacKillop for God’s intervention on behalf of us all during this challenging time for the world.
