  1. New Zealand and Australia on 17th October 2010 will be celebrating the Canonisation of Mary McKillop a nun of the 19th Century who travelled extensively between Australia and New Zealand and founding The Order of The Sisters of St Joseph -a teaching and caring order. I commend all my Irish relatives and all Ireland to her tender Blessings.
