Central to the religious life of the school is the person of Jesus Christ who came among us ‘as one who serves’ (Luke 22.27). Our Catholic school is committed to reaching out to help those in need, through charitable outreach initiatives. All outreach activities connect to the person of Jesus Christ and to the sacraments, especially the Eucharist. Drawing on the Catholic Social Teaching of the Church, we have a deep commitment to supporting a range of charitable organisations, families and individuals in need.

Informed by the Marist Charism and work of St Mary of the Cross MacKillop, as a College community we strive to give witness to the person of Christ by engaging in social outreach opportunities. We believe that each person is made in the image and likeness of God and staff and students are provided with several opportunities to affirm the ‘dignity of the human person’ by donating to many other worthy causes including St Vincent de Paul Winter and Christmas Appeals, Caritas Australia’s Project Compassion, Marist Solidarity and Sydney Archdiocesan Annual Charitable Works Fund. We contribute and are part of the universal Catholic family that accepts the responsibility to help each person achieve their full potential’.

By working in ‘solidarity’ with these local Catholic agencies and parishes, the community engages in formation to understand the Catholic social teachings that underpin our service to those in need. At the heart of serving others is Jesus’ golden rule; to love God and to love your neighbour as yourself –  a core belief that is lived out through staff and students participation in One Meal and Nursing Home Visits – fostering a greater sense of community spirit and working towards the ‘Common good for all’.
