The Sisters of St Joseph are pleased to announce the launch of the brand new official Mary MacKillop website that offers users a highly interactive and exciting journey into the life and legacy of Australia’s first saint and one of the country’s most interesting women.
 
 
 
The website is now live at www.marymackillop.org.au.
 
 
 
The website features never-before-seen images of Mary MacKillop, readings of her final letters and virtual tours of Mary’s tomb and her last home – Alma Cottage.
 
 
 
Sister Annette Arnold worked closely with leading international web developers, Fraynework Multimedia to create a site that makes Mary and her story accessible to all people regardless of where they live and regardless of their religion.
 
 
 
“This website gives anyone interested in the story of Mary MacKillop an intimate and personal understanding of her life and the contributions she made to Australia,” says Sister Annette.
 
 
 
Director of Client Services of Fraynework Multimedia, Sister Anne Walsh says her team were thrilled to be part of the project.
 
 
 
“We applied a range of modern technologies along with visually rich graphic design to provide site visitors with an engaging online journey.
 
 
 
“The combination of captivating video, audio, art and historical imagery help bring the story of one of Australia’s great pioneering women to life in a compelling digital form,” says Sister Anne.
