Many students participate in practical opportunities to put the words of the Gospel into action through awareness raising activities, visitation, fund-raising and other forms of social action.
The College has a particular emphasis on fundraising for Caritas and St Vincent de Paul, as well as other local charities. Project compassion and the Vinnies Winter and Christmas Appeals are always a major focus at the College. The College has an active Young Vinnies group, which has formed links with the local St Vincent de Paul Conference and is looking to widen their scope of activities in 2019.
These activities provide students with opportunities to deepen their understanding of a range of social issues and to develop empathy and understanding of a range of social issues.
