Faith and

Men of Faith and Leadership

It is a privilege for us to walk alongside our young men on their respective faith journeys.

Liturgical Life

We take great pride in developing Catholic leaders of the future within our Marist tradition.

Our programmes reflect, support, and celebrate each student’s faith journey as we guide and inspire them to live out their faith in everyday life through the sacraments, prayer, and service to their community. Whānau, as the first educators, are central to our faith community and are warmly welcomed to be active participants in our special character programmes and events.

All students participate in the Religious Education programme that enables them to explore their faith.  Midweek Mass, Benediction, class chapel time and boarders Mass provide opportunities for students and staff to pray together.


Our encounter programmes provide our community opportunities to explore and develop their faith and an understanding that God speaks to us through the people and events in our lives.

One way we do this is though our Encounter Weeks which have themes of; leadership of self and others, prayer life, and service and social justice. Additional encounter experiences include class chapel time, adoration, Benediction and Mass, as well as interactions in daily life.


Leadership opportunities are provided across all levels of the college as we create an environment where students are supported to lead and learn about themselves while they develop into leaders of our wider community.

Our Student Leaders foster the Catholic spirit in our college and strive to make it a better place for those who follow them while embedding the traditions and values of those who have been before. The stewardship of our Marist heritage and charism is nurtured and supported by the National Young Marist Team.

Service and Social Justice

Through all aspects of the college our young men’s talents are fostered and developed to encourage lifelong service to others.

As well as daily teaching and reinforcement within our learning environment, our students are active in the wider community through a range of social justice and service projects that make a difference to the lives of others.

Student opportunities include;

  • School-wide service days
  • Young Vinnies
  • SVO (Students Volunteering for Others)
  • Serving at food kitchens
  • Making lunches for primary schools
  • Exchange programmes with Apifou’o College in Tonga
