A bronze statue of Mary MacKillop, the former nun and teacher who could become Australia's first Saint, sculpted by Judith Rolevink and placed adjacent to St Francis Xavier’s Cathedral in Mary MacKillop Plaza, in Adelaide, South Australia, Australia . The life-sized statue depicts Mary MacKillop in full stride, holding hands with a young girl and an Aboriginal boy. It was blessed and dedicated by Archbishop Philip Wilson in 2009, among events to commemorate the centenary of Mary MacKillop's death, with four of the most senior members of the Josephite order founded by Mary MacKillop in 1867 assisted with the unveiling.
