The Sisters of the Society of the Sacred Advent was an Anglican religious order that arrived in Perth, from England, in 1933 to manage the Parkerville Children's Home after the Community of the Sisters of the Church left. The Sisters of the Society of the Sacred Advent managed Parkerville Children's Home until the Community of the Sisters of the Church again took over its management in 1941.
