Peter Cahalan, inaugural History Trust CEO, will discuss Mary MacKillop (1842-1909), the national changemaker whose work as a pioneering educator and social reformer changed the lives of countless Australians. From Penola (1866) her outreach grew exponentially as courageous young women joined her in Adelaide from mid-1867, spreading their work across South Australia and into the other Australian colonies and New Zealand. Mary’s story continues to touch hearts, her legacy lives on! Following his talk, Peter will be joined by Mary MacKillop Museum Director, Mary Ryan RSJ, for a Q&A and guided tour of the museum.
