The Religious Life of the School focuses on the dimension of Religious Education, commonly referred to as 'teaching people to be religious in a particular way' (Moran, 1991) and is comprised of four interrelated components:
Southern Cross Catholic College derives its identity and culture from its Catholic christian character. The school is called to be a real and living expression of the Church's pastoral mission in the world.
Evangelisation and faith formation are focused in an explicit way on the call to hear the Gospel of Jesus Christ, to respond to it in daily life and to deepen personal understanding and faith.
Prayer is the raising of one's mind and heart to God or a request for good things from Him. Worship is described as the adoration of God that may be expressed through praise, self-offering, sorrow or petition.
Social Justice and Action
At Southern Cross Catholic College we believe each person is made in the image and likeness of God and has absolute dignity and worth. We work to build the dispositions of empathy and solidarity in our students through programs for service-learning, social justice programs and outreach experiences.
