The College Chapel is a sacred space at the centre of the College. It is a living symbol of the core mission of the College, namely to be a Catholic school which has Christ at its centre and which exists to educate its students in the words of St Marcellin Champagnat, founder of the Marist Brothers, to be ‘good Christians and good citizens.’ Our Chapel also celebrates the memory of our patron, Archbishop Thomas Carr and proposes him to the College community, students, parents and staff as an example and guide in living the Christian life.
The College Chapel reminds all that Thomas Carr was
- A man of faith
- A leader of the Catholic Church in Melbourne for thirty years
- A scholar who taught and wrote throughout his life and who made Catholic education a priority as Archbishop of Melbourne, and
- A pastoral person who cared for all in Melbourne, and especially the poor and needy.
