Home > News > Story



A painting of St Marguerite Bourgeoys was installed officially on June 2, 2013 at Sacred Heart Church in Sydney. It is dedicated to the Sisters of the Congregation of Notre Dame at Holy Angels Convent, George St., Sydney who began service as teachers in 1885. The Sisters not only taught but in many ways positively influenced the life of the Sacred Heart Parish and the broader community for 126 years.

The painting is by the American sculptor William E. Brown who now lives in Miami, Florida. While growing up in Sydney he was fortunate to be taught how to paint by one of the Sisters at Holy Angels. In thankfulness for that gift and great memory of the Sisters at Holy Angels, Mr. Brown donated this painting which he painted in the winter of 2013 after accepting a request from the pastor Fr. Anthony O'Connor to commemorate the legacy of the Sisters of Holy Angels Convent at Sacred Heart Church.
