Ave Maria College is an active participant in the mission of the Catholic Church to proclaim God's reign.

The College strives to live out the teachings and values of Jesus Christ. We are a community based on love, justice, compassion and integrity, which, like the Gospel of John, sees faith as a set of actions.

To this end, our students are encouraged to participate in various social justice initiatives throughout the year ranging from the Faith in Action Today (FIAT) community service project, Homework Club run by the Edmund Rice Refugee Service, fundraising and awareness raising activities. Membership of the Faith and Social Justice Committee is open to all students and strongly encouraged.

Our theme for 2017 is Be a mirror of Christ - St Clare of Assisi

I am a mirror of Christ when I reflect Christ-like qualities such as faith, hope, love and compasssion.

I am a mirror of Christ when I allow individual God-given qualities to shine through when I shine as God intended.

I am a mirror of Christ when I call forth the best from others whether by being supportive of others or providing a good example.

I am a mirror of Christ when I take care of those in need around me or raise the awareness of others to situations of injustice.
