From the Maitland Mercury report:
This year’s reunion of St Joseph’s College Lochinvar holds extra significance. t marks 150 years since the Sisters of St Joseph’s were founded.
It all began with Julian Tenison Woods and Mary MacKillop in Penola, South Australia in 1866.
Julian and Mary were inspired to find ways of serving the poor primarily through education and the support of families in rural areas.
From Penola, a foundation was made to Perthville, NSW in 1872.
