Ministry is a vital part of St Francis Xavier's College. Shaped by the Marist charism, Ministry has at its heart the five Marist Pillars

  • Presence
  • Simplicity
  • Family
  • Love of Work
  • In the way of Mary

These pillars are evident in the liturgies celebrated throughout the year - especially on special feast in the Churches year where staff and students are called to be present to God and each other and at House Days where members gather as a family to celebrate the charism of their House and find new and meaningful ways to live out the Gospel.

All of our Year 12 students have the opportunity to participate in a retreat program in Term 2; students overwhelmingly evaluate this experience as one of the highlights of their year. Retreat is a time to move away from the demands of study, to find personal space and renew the body and spirit.
