Faith & Community
The Kolbe Catholic College student upholds the Catholic values that have been inspired by the work and message of hope from our College patron, St Maximilian Kolbe, who was a true model of Jesus Christ. They are guided by the Franciscan charism of fully giving of one’s spirit in applying the Catholic ethos to their everyday lives. Each student is assisted on their own personal ‘Journey in Faith’ and the integration of that faith within the contemporary Australian culture and society in a variety of ways. They are encouraged to practise Christ’s ministry through discourse and education in religion, prayer and reflection, liturgy, charity, raising awareness of world issues, inter-faith dialogue, social justice and community action.
A key part of the holistic development and deepening of faith for all students at Kolbe Catholic College is their encounter with diverse spiritual experiences and the relationships with each other and with Christ that, as a consequence, spiritually nourishes them. As a Catholic community we strive to educate our students to live out the Gospel values as informed learners empowered to shape and enrich our world. We also seek to forge valuable partnerships with key stakeholders within our local, national and global communities, so that our College continues to be an active and responsible citizen within these contexts.
This leads to every student becoming confident, proud companions of the Kolbe legacy and in living their lives with faith, courage and compassion.
