Supporting students’ growth in personal faith and spirituality is achieved within a community context. The College community is a Church community and liturgical celebrations, retreats, community service activities, prayer experiences and justice oriented groups all contribute to the life of faith within Loreto Coorparoo.
The liturgical life of the College is supported by the Carmelite priests from the local Mt Carmel parish at Coorparoo and the College’s Religion program follows Archdiocesan requirements for the religious education of students within the Church in Brisbane. Justice oriented activities are also conducted within the context of the Church community through the St Vincent de Paul Society, Catholic Missions, Caritas and Mary Ward International.
We wish our students to develop a strong understanding of self and also a sense of being connected to others; to be women of hope who are able to meet the inevitable difficulties of life with courage and faith.
