Summary

Catherine Morrison grew up in the Presbyterian Church in the Riverina District of New South Wales and Victoria, and was associated with St Enoch's church in Newtown, Sydney at the height of it's influence. She was active in the Presbyterian Fellowship Union of New South Wales on Sydney's North Shore in the 1920s and 30s, holding various executive positions during this time. In the 1940s, she was secretary of the Presbyterian Women's Federation, an organisation that promoted action on social questions and women's status in the church. One initiative was to unite all Presbyterian Women's organisations.
