This is the story of the Sisters of Our Lady Help of Christians, a special group of women whose congregation took shape in the Australia of the 1920s. The driving objective of the founding Sisters was ministry among Australia's Indigenous peoples. There was a pre-history in the Kimberly region of WA and pioneering missionary service on the Palm and Fantome Islands off the northern coast of Queensland. St Columba's College, Springwood, however, provided the Sisters with a settled base and on-going support as they undertook the domestic care of the seminary. This soon led to similar service St Patrick's major seminary at Manly. The story told in this book is 'an eloquent witness to the Sisters' faith hope and love, and their heroic dedication to God and his Church.' Cardinal Edward Clancy.
