Our Faith and Mission program provides opportunities for students to realise and explore issues of social justice in our local and global communities. Students are encouraged to be aware of the needs in our community and for our environment, working together to create a just world in the true spirit of Mercy.
The Student Faith and Justice Team raise awareness and promote participation in activities such as the Winter Sleep Out, Justice Matters Camp, Seeds of Justice Conference and Caritas Leadership Day.
In partnership with the Religious Education program, our students are encouraged to celebrate who we are as a Christian community through creative and diverse experiences.
Each day begins with prayer and we gather to celebrate special occasions such as Opening Mass, Ash Wednesday, Easter, Anzac Day and Mercy Day. We also welcome the opportunity to celebrate with families through House Masses, the Year 7 Welcome Mass and Year 12 Graduation Mass.
Connection to our Mercy story is important in the spiritual journey of students at Catherine McAuley College. We seek to develop a social conscience in our students through faith in action and ‘Living Mercy’ in our daily lives. Opportunities through immersions, retreats, liturgies and Justice Matters camps continue to strengthen students’ awareness of local and global issues and understanding of the Gospel values.
