In October 2010 all roads led to Rome! Thousands, old and young, from Australia and Aotearoa New Zealand, as well as many from other parts of the world, made the pilgrimage to Rome to participate in the Canonisation Mass in which Mary Helen MacKillop (1842-1909) was formally recognised as a saint of the universal Church.
Among the pilgrims gathered in St Peter's Square in Rome on 17 October for the canonisation was a group of 150 Sisters of St Joseph. Many more people gathered in their homes around the world to watch the ceremony on television and took part in local celebrations as one of their own was named, St Mary of the Cross MacKillop.
The images in this souvenir book capture the excitement, the ceremony and the profundity of that pilgrimage to Rome. They also depict wonderful moments of the celebrations in Australia and around the world.
