A living story you are a part of: The Sisters of Charity Heritage Centre

The Heritage Centre brings alive the spirit of the Sisters of Charity, its history and heritage. It is a creative and inclusive space comprising of a permanent and temporary exhibition, chapel and courtyard, and meeting room. We'd love to welcome you!

Visit the Heritage Centre to learn more about Australia’s first religious women, and the connection their story has to yours. The first five arrived in Sydney in 1838 to work at the Female Factory at Parramatta. From humble beginnings, they started work in health care and education , being “extensively useful” as their founder Mary Aikenhead asked them to be. These courageous and remarkable women went on to start St Vincent’s hospitals and over 70 schools on the east coast of Australia.

The permanent exhibition features some fantastic displays, the private chapel is a beautiful Romanesque and neo-Gothic example and we offer refreshments and conversation. You’d be surprised what you’d learn in this very special place!
