Mission and Identity

Support for Vinnies

Siena has had a longstanding commitment to the St Vincent de Paul Society.  This Catholic welfare and justice agency undertakes exemplary outreach and advocacy in our Melbourne neighbourhoods. Siena staff regularly volunteer on a Sunday Soup Van organised through St Dominic’s parish, providing food and conversation to people who live on our streets.  

On the first, third and fifth Tuesday mornings of each month Siena students join Sr Julianna with staff members Bronwyn Ilott and Minna Denholm at the Parish Centre to prepare sandwiches to support this initiative, in the coming week a number of Year 7 and 8 students will also assist with the annual Seniors Lunch at St Dominic’s.

These actions are part of the Service to the Community program – this is an integral component of all students’ education at our College. 

Year 12 

It’s hard to believe that we have commenced planning for the 2019 Graduation Eucharist.  With the end of term on the horizon I encourage our Year 12 students to start contemplating all that they are grateful for as they conclude their Siena experience.  All Year 12 students will participate in a special Liturgy in their final Religious Education class this term, this Liturgy will focus both on gratitude and the 2019 College theme – Called By Name.
