Mission Matters

2022 College Theme: In Truth and Action

Our Siena experience doesn’t happen in isolation – we are more than just a collection of individuals:

For this is the message you have heard from the beginning,
that we should love one another…
How does God’s love abide in anyone who has the world’s goods
and sees a brother or sister in need
and yet refuses to help?
Let us love, not in word or speech, but in truth and action.
(1 John 3:11, 17-18)

Our 2022 College Theme impels us to love in truth and action – to take the initiative in connecting beyond ourselves. It impels us to consider the following in our contemporary Catholic context:

  • Spiritual and social awareness
    Who are we as a community of faith?
  • Challenges and responsibilities
    Where are we called to be present?
  • Conviction expressed in simple truths
    What do we say and do?

Enhancing Catholic School Identity

In collaboration with the Catholic Education Commission of Victoria, KU Leuven (Belgium) has designed a process and tools based on sound research, to accomplish the goal of understanding our current Catholic identity and where Catholic school communities might like to see themselves in the future.

The 2022 ECSI Survey is a key element of this process – these surveys will be completed online in Term 1 by students, staff and families to assist us in better understanding how our Catholic identity is expressed in work and practice here at Siena College. Details for accessing and completing the survey will be distributed in the coming weeks.
