Central to the religious life of the school is the person of Jesus Christ who came among us ‘as one who serves’ (Luke 22.27). Our Catholic school is committed to reaching out to help those in need, through charitable outreach initiatives. All outreach activities connect to the person of Jesus Christ and to the sacraments, especially the Eucharist. Drawing on the Catholic Social Teaching of the Church, we have a deep commitment to supporting a range of charitable organisations, families and individuals in need.

The community of St Mary–St Joseph Catholic Primary School Maroubra is caring and supportive. The students and families in the school actively support fundraising and social activities throughout the year to provide assistance to various charities including St Vincent de Paul, Charitable Works Fund, CatholicCare and Caritas Australia.
