A Bright Light in the Darkness - The Catherine McAuley Story

On Monday 26th June, St. Brigid’s Kyogle will host ‘A Bright Light in the Darkness – The Catherine McAuley Story’. After a sell-out tour in Victoria, Queensland and Sydney in 2016 the show is again touring in 2017 and we are very excited the show is coming to Kyogle.
The play, from award winning Blue Whale Theatre Company, is designed for children and families, telling the story of Catherine McAuley – Founder of the Sisters of Mercy. It captures the heart and spirit of Catherine McAuley, chronicling her journey through her life, from her childhood experiences to her adult life.
Catherine McAuley paved the way for others to follow in her example and set foundations for the Sisters of Mercy, who to this day follow in her footsteps.
We are extremely appreciative to the Sisters of Mercy from Casino who are funding the performance to acknowledge the 130th anniversary of the arrival of the Sisters in Casino and then in 1914 here in Kyogle.

This performance will be a part of our significant celebrations and acknowledgement of the Mercy Sisters here at St Brigid’s as we will be opening the Mercy Reflection Garden on Thursday 29th June.
