Since 1949 The Majellan has been a much-loved Catholic magazine for mothers and families. It covers articles of importance to families, including how to raise children. This book celebrates The Majellan’s 70th anniversary revisiting the stories that reflect the changing culture of Australia over that time.  

First published in January 1949 by the Redemptorist Congregation in Ballarat. The forerunner to the magazine was a four-page bulletin, the League of St Gerard Majella. The response to the bulletin was so overwhelming the Redemptorists decided to expand the publication into a quarterly magazine. The aim was to make St Gerard better known among Catholic mothers, as their special patron – the mother’s saint.

Today, the strong Majellan tradition continues where the focus remains on the family, with articles of interest that address a range of issues affecting families. Under the patronage of St Gerard Majella, The Majellan has long incorporated a strong focus on families and mothers. The life and work of St Alphonsus Liguori, the founder of the Redemptorists and a man committed to the poor and marginalised, strongly influences the formation of articles.

While the nature of families has changed dramatically, the Redemptorists believe the family unit is still vitally important and to that end The Majellan will not desert families. The digital age is well and truly with us, and the advent of new technologies provides another way of getting the Majellan message out there.

Here's to the next 70 years!
