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.
Marcellin College Randwick is committed to supporting those most vulnerable in our community. Twice weekly a member of staff accompanies Year 11 students to volunteer at the Matthew Talbot Hostel for homeless men, at Woolloomooloo run by St Vincent de Paul. Weekly our staff accompany Year 10 students visiting the residents of Milford House, an aged care facility in Randwick.
Over the Lenten period, the college raises funds via various initiatives to support Marist Solidarity, Caritas and St Vincent de Paul. Our Year 7 and Year 8 student body participate in the Sponsored Fast to contribute to the Lenten appeal.
Students from the college, accompanied by staff participate in the Salvation Army’s Red Shield appeal. During Term 4, the college conducts its annual walkathon to raise funds for an initiative chosen by our college student leadership team.
The college also participates in the Vinnies Christmas appeal where students provide various goods to be distributed to local families in need over the Christmas period.
