to mrschisholm.com, a website that seeks to increase knowledge
and appreciation of the life and work of Caroline Chisholm
– of her heroic virtue, in short – and thereby,
please God, to help in promoting the commencement and advancement
of a Cause for her beatification in the Catholic Church .
. . and, in time, her canonization.
To ensure this saintly
woman becomes better known and to contribute, as best we can,
to the Church’s official processes of recognition, a
range of new resources are being planned. These include printed
information, audio and visual materials and participatory
activities (such as pilgrimages to significant sites associated
with Mrs Chisholm). We would appreciate receiving your ideas
and suggestions as to what should or could be done –
and, if possible, offers of assistance with your drawing,
writing, office, singing or other skills: please email email@example.com.
Issue #5 of the Friends of Caroline Chisholm has been released. It looks at developments in the Church's social justice teaching in the 19th century and at Mrs Chisholm's Shellharbour initiative of settling new emigrant families on clearing leases. Issue #4 features reports on the new portrait of Caroline Chisholm in the Domus Australia chapel in Rome and an interview with Dr Carole Walker (author of A Saviour of Living Cargoes), as well as a compelling statement concerning Mrs Chisholm’s heroic virtue and the editorial. Go to the Newsletter page to access the current and future issues. Higher resolution images of the new portrait and its location above a side altar in the chapel are included on the News and FAQ’s page. Also on that page are images of the commissioned mosaic of Caroline Chisholm in Goulburn’s old cathedral and a short description of its blessing and unveiling last year
