Faith in Action

Peace, justice and preservation of creation are three absolutely interconnected themes which cannot be separated or treated individually” (Pope Francis, Laudato Si’)

The theme of the Faith in Action program is to build sustainable communities for the future through provision of a Transformational Curriculum and participation in Social Action and Solidarity in partnership with those on the margins. 

All students have the opportunity to engage in a broad range of experiences over their Laurie’s Journey. 

Each year level from Years 7-12 has a theme connected to a Catholic Social Teaching and a specific curriculum focus, with an opportunity for active service that stems from this learning.

Students are also invited to build an inclusive community by involving themselves in events and opportunities, including:
