Mission and Identity

St Mary’s House of Welcome Outreach

St Mary’s House of Welcome opens the doors daily to over two hundred people living in ongoing poverty. Each year our College undertakes a Christmas Hamper Appeal to benefit this community – these are compiled in House Groups and staff groups across Siena. Please take the time to discuss your daughter’s contribution with her and visit https://www.smhow.org.au/ to find out more about this important justice initiative.

Mass of Remembrance

November is a significant month of remembering in both secular and church calendars.  Around 8 November the Dominican family remembers those who have died.  On 7 November 7 members of the Siena community gathered in our College Chapel for a Mass of Remembrance to honour those who have died, especially in the past year.  Candles were lit and loved ones named during the Gathering Rites and roses were presented to all assembled at the end of our liturgy prior to refreshments being enjoyed in the Staff Room. We are grateful to Sr Julianna Drobik OP, Cathy Carr and our celebrant Fr Kevin Toomey OP for their organisation and support of this important Eucharist.
