Goulburn media interview follows Peru reports

Following this week’s media reports about the Prime Minister’s visit to the North Sydney Sisters’ mission in Peru, Sister Marie Duffy RSM (Congregation Leader, Goulburn) was invited to speak on ABC Radio Canberra’s Drive Programme presented by Ms Louise Maher.

Marie had the opportunity to speak of how the sisters have been working over the last 150 years in this area of ACT and NSW. Louise asked many questions about the Mercy mission in general and the life of Catherine McAuley.

As a result of the report from Peru, Louise was encouraged to visit the Australian Mercy website and she told Marie she was very impressed with the site.

Thanks to the North Sydney reports from Peru, the story was taken up on Canberra ABC.
