Religious Education in our Catholic schools and colleges develops students’ knowledge and understandings of Christianity in the light of Jesus and the Gospel, and its unfolding story and diversity within contemporary Australian and global society. It expands students’ spiritual awareness and religious identity, fostering their capacities and skills of discerning, interpreting, thinking critically, seeking truth and making meaning. It challenges and inspires their service to others and engagement in the Church and the world.

WHAT DOES THIS LOOK LIKE?
St. Patrick’s Parish celebrate Mass through the week and on each weekend all children, regardless of denomination, are urged to attend Mass. Each class is responsible for a class Mass or liturgy each term. As well as this, Youth Masses are also run by the school in conjunction with the Parish at least once a term.
