Our Lady Help of Christians

Our Lady Help of Christians plays an important role in Australian Catholicism as she is considered the Patroness of Australia. She is our "spiritual" mother and takes care of the sick and dying, and those who are experiencing difficulties and hardship.

Today, many people experience poverty and homelessness, in addition to mental health issues and disabilities. Mary, like any other mother, wants to help.
