Special Character:

The Sisters of St Joseph of Nazareth:

The order was founded in Australia in the 1860s by Mary Mackillop and Fr Julian Tenison Woods to meet the needs of poor families with a focus on education. The sisters lived simply and moved where the need arose. In 1880 four sisters began the New Zealand branch in Whanganui. Today the sisters no longer teach in the schools, however, they continue their mission of seeking fullness of life for the earth and its people by working in a variety of areas. St Joseph provides a role model for the Sisters. Foundress Blessed Mary Mackillop is to be canonised on October 17 this year. For more information on the sisters visit their website:


The Marist Fathers:

The Society of Mary (Marists) was founded in Lyon, France by Fr Jean-Claude Colin in 1816. The goal was to make Mary present in the world through their attitude of service and humility. The Marists first came to New Zealand in 1838 with Bishop Pompallier and were present at the signing of the Treaty of Waitangi. Today their work in New Zealand is focused on three areas- Youth and Education, Missionary Parishes and Foreign Lands. For more information on the Marists visit their website:


Cullinane College:

We have continued links with the Sisters of St Joseph, particularly assisting with their work in reclaiming the wetlands at Mount St Joseph. Our links with the Marist Order has been with the prefects attending a Young Leaders course annually (MYL) with follow-up throughout the year by the MYL leaders. Consequently servant leadership and fullness of life for people and the environment are important aspects of the developing Cullinane charism. We are certainly fortunate to have Mary and St Joseph as our role models.
