Xavier College is a place of learning and celebration. It is a community which is living and responding to the life and words of Jesus Christ, and a place where individuals experience love and respect.
Our part in this is to bring Jesus’ word and teaching to life. Liturgy and prayer are an integral part of daily life at Xavier. Important events on the Church calendar are celebrated and commemorated with a variety of styles of liturgies, ranging from home group liturgies to whole school Eucharistic celebrations.
Since we believe that our God truly values and loves us just as we are – no strings attached – there is a vital place in the Xavier College community for each and every one of us. On this basis, we strive to create a community within the school founded on the practice of this same unconditional love.
Every person in the school community is valued and essential for the life of the community. Our school community depends on the individual gifts that each and every person brings.
Xavier College attempts to provide an authentic experience of Christian life.
Prayer and Reflection
Our Sacred Space is in constant use for prayer groups, Stations of the Cross reflection, class prayer and meditation sessions, along with the celebration of Mass on the first Friday of every month.
Each school day is started with a prayer, and opportunities for prayer are weaved into the fabric of daily school life at Xavier.
Staff and students share annual reflection days and retreats. These are an important contribution to our education programs – at Xavier we believe that, ‘at the heart of education is the education of the heart.’
