Xavier Social Justice Network

Mission

The Xavier Social Justice Network (XSJN) works within the spiritual tradition of the Jesuits. This tradition calls us to live a faith within which social justice is the heart. 

The network seeks to engage the wider Xavier College community – Old Xaverians, current parents and their families, past parents and staff – in becoming compassionate and reflective men and women who are committed to serving those in need through direct service and through raising awareness about social justice issues.


  • Volunteer opportunities

    XSJN invites the Xavier College community to engage in volunteer work with social service agencies which support those in need. The Network also offers opportunities for volunteers to reflect on their experience and so to deepen their understanding of their commitment.

    The partner agencies include:

    • Sacred Heart Mission 
    • St Mary’s House of Welcome
    • St Vincent de Paul 
    • Jesuit Social Services
    • Brigidine Asylum Seekers Project
    • The Haven
    • 20th Man
    • Jesuit Missions

  • Advocacy

    XSJN also holds a number of advocacy events each year to raise awareness and to challenge our understanding of social justice issues. This includes the annual Jesuit Refugee Services Dinner and the advocacy forum, Daring to be Different. The XSJN newsletter also serves to inform members of current issues and ways to get involved to work towards positive solutions.
