Parish and School
Since the practice of community is basic to Christianity, and the growth of religious faith can occur only in a community of belief, positive interaction is promoted between the school and the Parish which is the local community. This interaction is mutually beneficial and directed towards the coming of God’s Kingdom.
Parish School Board
The School Board, established in 2003 by the Corporation of the Trustees of the Roman Catholic Archdiocese, provides a pastoral structure and process for the ministry of Catholic Education. The Board develops and responds to change within the school, maintaining its character and continuing to achieve its goals.
In his relationship with the school, the Parish Priest, Fr Mark Percival, exercises a pastoral role. He is available to parents, children and staff for guidance, ministry of the sacraments and friendship. Fr Mark may be contacted on Ph 3899 2837. Parish Office Hours are Tuesday to Friday, 8-30 am to 1pm.
