A story to inspire…
When you visit the Josephite Mission and History Centre you enter the site where a unique story has been unfolding for over a hundred years. It is a story which began with a dream shared by Mary MacKillop and Julian Tenison Woods at Penola, South Australia in 1866. The Centre was formerly the Mother House of the Sisters of Saint Joseph in Tasmania. It was established as such in 1907.
