Vision

Acknowledgement

Today we stand in footsteps millennia old,
and we acknowledge the traditional owners
the Darkinjung, Guringai and Awabakal tribes,
whose cultures and customs have nurtured,
and continue to nurture, this land,
since men and women awoke from the great dream.
We honour the presence of these ancestors
who reside in the imagination of this land
and whose irrepressible spirituality flows through all creation.

Our Identity

We are a community of people,
young and old, male and female, rich and poor, indigenous and migrant,
bound together by our baptismal faith in Jesus Christ, the light of the world.

Our Mission

This same person Jesus Christ calls us to follow him as his disciples,
and to walk in his footsteps,
so that together as brothers and sisters in Christ,
in one communion of mind and heart,
we may, with the grace of the Holy Spirit,
cooperate fully in his mission to save the world.

Partners in Mission

As a community of disciples,
we work in intimate partnership
with the local Church in the Diocese of Broken Bay, under Bishop David Walker,
and with the worldwide Catholic Church under Pope Benedict XIV.

We purposefully unite with MacKillop Catholic College
to form one communion of faith to better serve the mission entrusted to us by Christ.

We work cooperatively with all people of good will and with all of creation.

Inspired for Mission

We look to the life and inspiration of our patron saint, St Mary of the Cross MacKillop and all the saints of God to help us remain energised and faithful to the mission of Christ.

Parish & College Vision

The Parish and College were built together in the vision that a single campus might better enable Catholics to be one community of faith, combining the resources of both organisations to serve the faith development of all parishioners. It is a tight and rewarding bond.
