Spiritual development is integral to the development of the whole person. The College holds annual retreats for each year group, which are an opportunity for students to experience reflective time outside of the classroom environment, honouring their emotional and spiritual journey. Retreats offer Christ-centred, enjoyable opportunities where students gain solidarity and a sense of community. Retreat activities foster spiritual awareness, discernment, and personal formation.
Through Retreat experiences, students come to know Christian love and are exposed to a Gospel centred way of life. Students are empowered to connect the Gospel message to their lives, and to find ways of bringing their faith and values into action. They learn participation in the life of the Christian community through Liturgies and activities that emphasise growth in relationship with one another and with God.
Through the Years 7 to 12 Retreat program students are encouraged to encounter the spirit and life of Irene McCormack, St Mary MacKillop and, crucially, what it means to walk in the footsteps of Christ through Prayer, Service and Justice.
