The ABC has produced a podcast about St Mary MacKillop as part of a series on extraordinary Australian women called Fierce Girls. Source: The Southern Cross.
Executive producer Monique Bowley said Mary MacKillop’s life was an “incredible story”.
“Australia’s first saint had a dream to educate poor kids and she fiercely stood up against powerful priests for what she thought was right,” Ms Bowley said.
Narrated by 17-year-old actress Olivia Deeble, who has appeared in Little Lunch and Home and Away, the podcast goes for just under 13 minutes. Posters that can be coloured in are also available as part of the series which is aimed at children aged seven to 11. To listen to the podcast, visit Fierce Girls - Mary MacKillop podcast.
