St Mary of the Cross (MacKillop) believed that we should never see a need without doing something about it.
Her vision led to schools and orphanages being opened around the
country, along with facilities for the homeless and refuges for former
prisoners and prostitutes looking to make a fresh start.
respect for the dignity of all people, her service of the disadvantaged,
and her efforts to build the capacity of those communities she served
are qualities which ACU seeks to instill in its staff, students and
graduates, making her a worthy patron of the University.
