Faith & Spirituality

As well as being a centre of excellence in education, Caritas College is also a vibrant faith community.

The College is founded on the Josephite education: a pragmatic and contemporary methodology created by Mary MacKillop to create visionary learners.

Our religious identity plays a key role in the life of the College:

  • Liturgy and daily prayers is inclusive of all students and their families
  • Celebrations of the Eucharist engage children and young people with age-appropriate liturgy
  • Formal Religious Education curriculum is the first learning areas at Caritas College for all students (Reception to Year 12) and is based on Crossways Curriculum for Catholic schools
  • Family-centered Sacramental celebrations and preparation take place with the College in partnership with parents and the All Saints Parish Community
  • The Made in the Image of God Human Sexuality Program is taught across the school R-12 in partnership with parents/caregivers
  • Social Justice focus to be central to the heart of the schools visit and hence the College commemorates National Reconciliation Week as a central celebration in the school calendar
  • Mary MacKillop Feast Day is celebrated in August and is our community founding day
  • St Joseph as Patron Saint of all Josephite schools is the model of servant leadership for students and staff – the spirituality of St Joseph, St Mary of the Cross (MacKillop) and Mary the mother of God, form the spirituality underlying all actions at Caritas College.
