Xavier Catholic College – Mission Statement

Mission Statement

What does the Lord require of us

but to act justly,

and to love kindness,

and to walk humbly with our God? Micah 6:8

Xavier Catholic College Ballina is a Jesuit Companion School and a ministry of the St Francis Xavier Catholic Parish. Our mission is to provide a holistic Catholic education that is world-affirming, encourages a study of all reality and seeks wisdom.   We strive to develop conscientious leaders and agents of change who are intellectually competent, open to growth, committed to justice, and compassionate in service to others for the greater glory of God. We work in the name of Jesus and in the spirit of Ignatius of Loyola for a faith that does justice.

(Jesuits Australia) Mission Statement

Call to Mission
The Spirit of the Lord has been given to me,
for the Lord has anointed me.
The Lord has sent me to bring the good news to the poor,
to proclaim liberty to captives
and to the blind new sight,
to set the downtrodden free,
to proclaim the Lordʼs year of favour
(Luke 4:18-19)

Our Mission
In the name of Jesus
in the spirit of Ignatius
for a faith that does justice
