In 2017, we celebrated the centenary of Saint Frances Xavier Cabrini MSC (1850-1917), Universal Patron Saint of Immigrants and founder of the Missionary Sisters of the Sacred Heart of Jesus. In 2018, we celebrated the arrival of the Cabrini Sisters and the establishment of our diverse organisation.
We celebrate our heritage each year in November, with events scheduled around the Feast of Saint Frances Xavier Cabrini on 13 November. Celebrations include a Feast Day Mass, service recognition ceremonies to acknowledge service milestones reached by employees, and a commemorative service for employees, volunteers and members of our Cabrini community who have recently died.
Another significant celebration is the Feast of the Sacred Heart, which occurs seven weeks after Easter Sunday and falls on a Friday. During Mass, the Sisters renew their vows and we affirm our commitment to our shared mission.
