Blessed Mary MacKillop
Blessed Mary MacKillop.
Mary MacKillop may have lived most of her life in the 19th Century, but her Canonisation will be live online for all the world to see using 21st Century technology.

Coverage of the Canonisation on 17 October will be available on the web at the official Canonisation webcast at www.marymackillop.org.au incorporating a live, interactive webcast, photo galleries, a calendar of Canonisation celebrations, educational resources and information highlighting Mary’s life and legacy. The webcast will come with access instructions and commentary provided by Josephite Sister Giovanni Farquer and Father Mark Podesta.

The Canonisation webcast will also be available on the Archdiocese of Sydney site and XT3.com 

Josephite Sisters and Associates will be blogging from around the world and posting web videos at http://www.marymackillop.org.au/ along with stories of their experiences of the canonisation celebrations.

Sponsored by Telstra, the webcast will begin on Sunday 17 October at 5pm Eastern Daylight Saving Time (EDST), opening with live coverage of the Mary MacKillop Feast Day Mass from St Mary’s Cathedral in Sydney before crossing to the Canonisation ceremony in Rome at 6:15pm (EDST).

The webcast will be available on demand at www.marymackillop.org.au shortly after the ceremony concludes.

The Sisters of St Joseph believe the use of the web in covering Mary MacKillop’s Canonisation ensures that everyone is given the opportunity to access the celebrations regardless of where they live.
