Every year during Term 1, the Mount Alvernia College community supports Caritas Australia through Project Compassion by raising funds during Lent.
In Term 2, we support the MFIC Ministries worldwide and our Solomon Islands Partnership with Project Compassion. Alternating yearly, we commit to furthering the work of the MFIC Sisters and our Solomon Islands friends by raising funds for special projects and increasing awareness within the community. We also support St Vincent de Paul’s Winter Appeal during June to August every year.
In Term 3, we partner with charities and organisations whose charter it is to better women’s and children’s health and status in the communities in which they work, particularly the Cancer Council.
In Term 4, we dedicate our service efforts to the SVDP Christmas Hamper Appeal, as well as to Catholic Mission during October, which is Mission Month. As a college we build community in Christ by supporting Catholic Mission Month and its work with children.
