Julian Tenison Woods Pilgrimage in Tasmania

Chris O'Malley - Monday, September 05, 2011
On August 3 two of our student leaders, James Daly and Judith Ferguson together with Mrs Sarpi, attended the Julian Tenison Woods Pilgrimage in Tasmania along with staff and students from other Melbourne AJASS schools. They sailed on the "Spirit of Tasmania".

Upon arriving in Devonport they were greeted by the Principal of Sacred Heart College and the Sisters of St Joseph who would journey with them to MacKillop Hill in Forth, just outside of Devonport. On Friday August 5 the students and staff took part in the Colloquium at the Josephite History and Mission Centre in New Town, Hobart. Throughout the Colloquium they discovered how important Fr. Julian Tenison Woods was and particularly the significant part he had to play in the Mary MacKillop story. Fr Julian Tenison Woods was also a scientist, arborist, environmentalist and a poet.

The Josephite Sisters of Hobart (Black Joeys) were delighted that Fr Julian Tenison Woods features so prominently at our own MacKillop College. He was a magnanimous, intelligent and spiritual man who was ahead of his times according to the ‘ Joeys’, and they were thrilled that our accelerated learning Tenison Woods program was named after him.
