UPDATE: Walking for Mercy

On 6 June, parish priest at Nelson Bay, Fr Kevin Corrigan, commenced a walk from St Mary MacKillop Chapel, North Sydney, to Sacred Heart Cathedral, Hamilton. Its aim was to provide financial and prayer support for a newly commencing project in Cambodia. Read the full story in Aurora.

The Walk, 25-30 km per day, was a pilgrimage of prayer. Thanks to the kind generosity of the diocesan and broader community Fr Kevin was able to raise just over $30,000 to assist Miyuki’s work. This amount will finance the construction, and staffing of two rooms for a crèche for up to 30 infants under the age of three. It will be called St Mary MacKillop’s Infants Creche! Its availability will provide great support and encouragement to young families. It is possible that land adjacent to the JLMM project site could also now be purchased to provide a place of play and interaction for these little ones. Miyuki is deeply grateful for the unexpected support from Australia.
