The Religious Education and Faith Development programs at Star flow from creative engagement in the Judeo-Christian story, the mission of Jesus as witnessed by Nano Nagle and the Presentation Sisters, and the contemporary reality of the Catholic Church in Australia.
Our varied programs engage all members of the community via the head, heart and hands, incorporating a dynamic and rigorous formal classroom program with vibrant and meaningful liturgies and numerous opportunities for service and outreach.
Whether via the close study of Luke’s Gospel in Texts and Traditions, the planting of hundreds of trees or participation in College liturgies marking major feast days, all members of our community find a unique way of responding in faith through their ‘deeds and words’.
Led by the Religion and Faith Team some unique aspects of the Religious Dimension of Star include:
involvement in the Tony Blair Foundation’s Face to Faith Program – an international interfaith dialogue between students in different countries via video-conferencing;
the creative celebration of the life of our founding sisters, Mothers Paul Fay and John Byrne, through art, drama, music and liturgy;
regular student and staff outreach to Sacred Heart Mission, the Jesuit Social Services Tutoring program for recently-arrived Australians, the veterans in the ANZAC Hostel and the St Vincent de Paul Soup Van.
