We acknowledge the traditional owners of the lands on which we walk, live and work. We recognise their living culture and their unique role in the life of the areas in which Mercy Partners ministries are located. We pay tribute to all of those who have nurtured this country over many thousands of years, deriving spiritual and physical needs from the seas, forests, soil, rivers, lakes and streams. We join with our First Nations people in honouring this land as sacred. We welcome the Uluru Statement from the Heart and support an Indigenous voice to parliament, enshrined in the Australian Constitution.
Founded by the Sisters of Mercy in 1906, Mater is Queensland’s largest Catholic not-for-profit healthcare network, bringing together our collective expertise and resources across Mater Health, Mater Education and Mater Research to improve the health of our community.
