Education

The Mary Aikenhead Ministries exist in many schools across Australia to help educate children about the Word of the Lord. Their main mission is to teach the children many important values and help every single one of us, rich and poor. Their work is mainly directed to the children and they fulfil their mission by educating the young minds on the Word of the Lord. These ministries are needed so that they can help teach the children their priorities through their values.

The values that they show the elderly at Health and Aged Care services include...

- Compassion

- Kindness

These values are shown in their work, giving up their time to help take care of someone else, whereas they could be taking care of themselves. They show the elderly what the meaning of true 'happiness' is.

Welfare

The sisters of charity have reached out to New South Wales and family care services. This was called Congregation by the Sisters Of Charity, Australia in September 1990.

Welfare means the health and the happiness of the people around you, this is exactly what the Sisters of Charity did for many people. The sisters gave comfort, safety and well-being to the people that they met and helped.
