The Spirit of Mercy

The Spirit of Mercy is reflected in every aspect of school life.

Each student is invited to share the Christian story through classroom lessons, daily prayer, reflective experiences, celebrations of liturgy and participation in action for social justice.

Our students may choose to prepare for First Eucharist and Confirmation, which are the external signs of a commitment to a Christian life.

Throughout the school year our students participate in celebrations of the main events of the life of Christ – Lent, Easter and Christmas – through whole school Masses and classroom liturgies.

At St Aloysius College we maintain the commitment of the founding Sisters of Mercy to work for the most marginalised people in our community. We encourage students to participate in a broad range of social justice programs, with a particular focus on Mercy Works projects, both locally and abroad.

Each year students from Years 7 to 12 have opportunities to participate in a spiritual retreat, enabling them to develop their faith in a supportive and inclusive environment.

St Aloysius College is governed by Mercy Education Limited (MEL) on behalf of the Institute of The Sisters of Mercy of Australia and Papua New Guinea (ISMAPNG). To read more about MEL, please access the Mercy Education Charter or visit: www.mercy.edu.au.
