Coinciding with the canonisation of Australia’s first saint, this one hour documentary explores the remarkable life of Sister Mary MacKillop. Full of drama, intrigue and controversy as well as piety, devotion and faith, Mary’s story unfolds against a background of dynamic change in 19th Century Australia and in the Catholic Church. Presented by Alan Jones and featuring re-enactments, archival material and high profile interviews we learn of the mission, the vocation and the trials of the first Australian saint.
