Service and Outreach

At St Mary’s, as a welcoming faith community, students are provided with opportunities to:

  • access and understand the Sacred Scriptures and the life and teachings of Jesus Christ
  • develop a critical understanding and appreciation of the Catholic faith tradition and grow in the knowledge, beliefs, ritual practices, social structures, history, symbols, stories and teachings of this tradition
  • reflect, evaluate and interpret their life experience, which in turn will lead them to personal growth and the development of religious, spiritual and moral awareness
  • develop their leadership qualities for service in the worshipping community
  • learn about the life and work of Mary MacKillop and the Josephite Sisters and reflect on the impact and influence of the Josephite ethos on the life of the college
  • make explicit the stated values of the college in their daily life
  • analyse and respond to issues of injustice in the light of Catholic social teaching
  • participate in the Church’s social mission for the betterment of marginalised peoples both locally and globally.

As a community we support and serve others through active engagement with the following programs and organisations:

  • Catholic Mission
  • CatholicCare
