St Mary at Murwillumbah NSW

St Mary of the Cross MacKillop Icon at St Patrick's Murwillumbah NSW
In July I was able to visit Mount St Patrick's College, Murwillumbah NSW where an Icon of St Mary of the Cross which I wrote in March has been installed. It is in an alcove positioned in the walkway of the college.
The Icon is mounted on the beautiful red wood timber from the local area.
Principal Tony Daley took me around and showed me the rich history of the school. The surrounds of the college are absolutely beautiful, nestled in the shadow of Mt. Warning.

The picturesque township of Murwillumbah is located in the centre of the stunning Tweed Valley on the far north coast of New South Wales, just 15 minutes from the pristine beaches of the Tweed Coast, 30 minutes south of the Gold Coast and 40 minutes north of Byron Bay. Watched over by the awe inspiring majesty of Mt.Warning, and surrounded by 5 World Heritage National Parks, the countryside around Murwillumbah is a blend of rolling green hills and gently flowing rivers, punctuated with pockets of sugar cane, banana plantations, hobby farms and small village communities.
