Mary Aikenhead Ministries
On July 1, 2009, Mary Aikenhead Ministries was established by the Congregation of Religious Sisters of Charity of Australia to continue the Congregation's various health and aged care, education and welfare ministries. Under Mary Aikenhead Ministries the Sisters' facilities, including SV&MHS, are now governed by a group of Trustees, consisting initially of two members of the Congregation and three lay colleagues.
One of the major objectives of Mary Aikenhead Ministries is to continue to build on the charism and traditions of the Sisters of Charity of Australia to ensure that each of the works for which it is responsible operates in conformity with the teaching, discipline and law of the Roman Catholic Church.
