For Parishes

Mary MacKillop International (MMI) is the international aid and development agency of the Sisters of St Joseph. We work with communities in Timor-Leste, Peru and Papua New Guinea, following in Saint Mary’s footsteps to partner with local people and provide opportunities in education, health and livelihoods.

MMI invites your parish to be a part of ‘Mary’s Community’ and build life for hundreds of thousands of people throughout the world.
