A Marist School

Genuinely Catholic and Proudly Marist


Trinity Catholic College
 is part of the Australian network of Marist schools and has been characterised by a specific Marist spirit, charism and tradition, showing:

  • A devotion to Mary, mother of Jesus
  • A school climate based on the family spirit
  • A love of work
  • A strong sense of the presence of God and of our own presence to one another
  • An emphasis on simplicity
  • A commitment to empower young people, and to give ordinary students from ordinary families a better chance in life.

Our Charism

The Marist Brothers have been associated with education at Auburn since 1942. When Trinity Catholic College commenced in 1995, a Marist Brother was appointed Principal and an onsite community of Brothers ministered to the school.

The College is part of the Australian Network of Marist Schools with its staff and students participating in a number of Marist sponsored activities.

Remar

Remar is a dynamic and vibrant Marist youth ministry program currently running at Trinity that aims to inspire young people to live out the values of the Gospel. Remar is a unique opportunity for students in year 10 to 12 that seeks to form Christian leaders who are prepared to stand in solidarity with those experiencing disadvantage and injustice, and who are motivated to take action. The Remar movement connects students with our Marist traditions and looks to Saint Marcellin Champagnat as a model navigator who embraced in his life the values of Jesus, which we are called to actively live out each day.

Remar was founded by a Colombian Marist Brother, Br Nestor Quiceno, who hoped to create a voluntary group that would lead to a renewal of the Marist Charism. This voluntary group has expanded to a youth ministry program that currently operates in most states and territories of Australia, New Zealand and South America.

Remar is a very practical and ‘hands on’ ministry opportunity for students at the College. In Remar students are encouraged to discover who they are and the type of person they wish to be.

This is achieved through the four components:

  1. Community: the formation of a strong sense of group identity (through camps, fortnightly meetings and group ministry activities)
  2. Skills and Knowledge: the development of individual leadership skills
  3. Ministry and service: involvement in service and ministry to the community. This allows students to put their faith into action
  4. Faith Development: exploration of the Christian faith and how this might influence our call to be people of justice

Remar is passionately creating young Christian leaders who make a difference in our community.
