Ten years of supporting women and children

In August 2018 we celebrated the milestone of ten years of the formation of McAuley Community Services for Women, but at every point we also honoured the legacies of the two organisations – Mercy Care and Regina Coeli - which merged to become our present organisation.

At a morning tea held in our new McAuley House, our staff celebrated alongside the women and children we’ve supported over that long history. It was a privilege to host many Sisters of Mercy, who had taken a gamble on the decision to merge the two organisations; many of them had never seen the beautiful new facility and were delighted to see the progress that has been made.

Our anniversary cake was cut by two of the original Board members who oversaw the establishment of McAuley, Sr Anne Ryan and Sr Nicole Rotaru.
