Community Service

Each year we offer a range of social justice activities that encourage our students to ‘walk in someone else’s shoes’ and serve others through involvement in:

  • Project Compassion
  • St Vincent de Paul Mini Vinnies - Mini Vinnies (Year 5 and 6) - Students visit the Nursing Home with our Mini Vinnies group, once a term as part of the College’s social justice program.  Students are encouraged to use their gifts to benefit others.  Residents are entertained by a variety of performances from juggling and joke-telling to poetry and piano playing.
  • St Vincent de Paul Sleepout
  • Parish Outreach Programs within the Whitsunday Region
  • St Vincent de Paul Christmas Appeal
  • Mission Australia: Socktober
  • Jesuit Social Services/Refugee Service
  • Service to Local Nursing Homes

As residents of the beautiful Whitsundays, we respect our role as stewards of creation, offering a variety of activities and groups that promote responsible citizenship in sustainability. We provide support through both fundraising and involvement to:

  • Clean Up Australia Day
  • Ecobarge
  • Enviro Group
  • Local Recycling Initiatives

St Catherine’s Catholic College graduates will be people of hope who:

  • Have the courage to proactively seek justice for the common good.  
  • Have the wisdom to recognise their gifts and to strive to excel for the benefit of all.
  • Have the generosity of heart to show compassion, both in their decision-making and in their relationships with others.
  • Have the integrity to create community through relationships, which are based on respect, inclusion, and tolerance.

Community service takes several forms:

  • Fundraising for Abera, our sponsor child
  • Project Compassion and Caritas
  • Donations for Vinnies Christmas Hampers


  • Clean up Australia Day
  • Vege gardens, butterfly garden, worm farms, Chickens
  • Energy monitors
  • Indigenous Signs and Symbols
