Our Lady Help of Christians

Tuesday 24 May is the Feast Day of Australian Patroness Our Lady Help of Christians.

Australians have invoked the patronage of the Blessed Virgin Mary under the title of 'Our Lady Help of Christians' since 1844.

Pope Pius VII established Mary Help of Christians as a feast day in 1815, after he returned to Rome from his years of captivity imposed by Napoleon Bonaparte.
