Faith in Action

Putting faith into action is part of daily life for our MacKillop girls.

Mary MacKillop College has been a supporter of the St Vincent de Paul Society for many years.

Our link with 'Vinnies' goes back to Mary MacKillop’s adage of 'never see a need without doing something about it'.

We support of Vinnies in the following ways:

  • raising funds and groceries, which are then donated to people in need
  • Christmas hampers at the end of the year are collected, sorted and then donated to families seeking assistance from Vinnies
  • some keen knitters knit squares for blankets to be made up, which is particularly helpful over a cold winter
  • the St Vincent de Paul group also raise awareness of poverty and need within our community
  • during JJAMM Week, the students are asked to bring in a grocery item which is given to the Winter Food Appeal.

Our links with the St Vincent de Paul Society are a real and practical way for our students to be involved in community service.
