Senator Panizza, pursuant to notice of motion not objected to as a

formal motion, moved--That the Senate--

(a) notes the beatification of Sister Mary MacKillop, founder of the

Order of Sisters of St Joseph of the Sacred Heart, by Pope John

Paul II on his recent visit to Australia, thus becoming the

first Australian to be beatified; and

(b) recognises the contribution made by that order to the education

of young people throughout Australia, especially in rural and

remote Australia.

Question put and passed.
