With the Catholic Church's celebration of Ash Wednesday and the commencement of Lent, the College has now kicked off its 2023 Project Compassion fundraising campaign.
Project Compassion, which is the main fundraising activity for Caritas Australia, seeks to raise funds for people living in some of the most vulnerable communities across the world. The collection spans across the six weeks of Lent each year.
The theme of Project Compassion is ‘For All Future Generations’, which reminds us that the good that we do today will extend and impact the lives of generations to come.
The College is aiming to continue its strong support of Project Compassion in 2023. MacKillop has been a great contributor to the cause in recent years, with our students and staff having raised around $150,000 over the past decade. Last year, the College raised $12,241.
Students and families can donate via Qkr! or through Pastoral Care Classes.

St Mary of the Cross MacKillop made the statement: “We are but travellers here, so while we are here we should do as much good as we can and live in peace with each other.”
With this in mind, the College respectfully acknowledges the Ngunnawal people who are the Traditional Custodians and First People of the land on which we gather each day. The College also pays its respects to the Elders past, present and emerging, and any other Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islander peoples living and working in the MacKillop community.
