"Even in the most difficult situations, God is waiting to be discovered" T. Radcliffe OP
The College offers the opportunity for Year 11 students to participate in the annual Vietnam Pilgrimage.
Since 2005, St Mary's College and Christian Brothers College students' have combined to participate in a Pilgrimage to Vietnam.
The primary focus of the Pilgrimage is on giving service and working with orphaned, disabled children in the Phu My Orphanage in the Thi Nghe District, Saigon.
The Orphanage was founded in 1875 is operated by the Sisters of St Paul de Charters where they provide care for over 300 young people ranging from 2 to 21 years of age. While at the Orphanage, students participate in a range of activities and are immersed in the day to day operation of the Orphanage.
The Pilgrimage Vision:
A journey of mission - where we provide service to those in need .... a giving of one's self to others
A journey of immersion - where we immerse ourselves in the vibrant and diverse culture of Vietnam
A journey of self discovery - where we, as individuals and a group discover strengths, limitations and goodwill.
