In keeping with the Mission Statement and respecting persons of all creeds, the CCM Administration recognizes the need for the college to develop from the perspective of a Catholic philosophy of education. A sub-committee of the Board named the Catholic Identity Sub-committee was established in 2011 to preserve and foster this quality within the everyday operation of the college. Creating a Chair of Theology, setting up a Chaplain’s Office and introducing Catholic Practice within the college at Assemblies. Recently a member of the Passionist Volunteers International (PVI) group has acted as Campus Minister to guide the weekly Assemblies with a Catholic format and flavour yet allowing for cultural and ecumenical expression.
