University feast day

St Mary of the Cross MacKillop is not only Australia’s first saint but is also patron of ACU. Join us to celebrate her life and legacy with liturgical and on-campus activities.

Monday 8 August is the feast day of St Mary of the Cross MacKillop, so it’s a time to stop and be thankful for the opportunities we have, to support one another and grow in our understanding of what it means to study and work at ACU.

Campus Ministry, in collaboration with Student Life and ACU Sport, invite all staff and students to celebrate our university patron in different ways across our campuses, including attending Mass and sharing some food.
