What do we know about nuns? They are devoted to God and practice abstinence. Is that all they really do? Know this much, a visit to the SSJG Heritage Centre is sure to change your perception. The Sister’s pf Saint John of God (SSJG) were a group of Irish missionaries who came to Broome in 1907 to preach to the Aboriginal women and children. Over the years, they built a convent and reached out and undertook many a social duties to best educate the local folk in trade and literacy.
In 2007, the SSJG celebrated their 100th anniversary in the Kimberley region. Among the exhibits are 45,000 photos that document the relationship of the Sisters with the people of Kimberley. Not only do they speak about what the convent did for the people, but the Heritage Centre is also regarded as an excellent source of information on Kimberley’s history.
