St Paul’s is a school that prides itself on being Catholic. We works to bring to life our vision of enlivening our community with the Gospel values as given to us by Jesus Christ through his teachings.
St Paul’s expresses and gives witness to its Catholic identity, ensuring that prayer and liturgy are central to all aspects of school life. Throughout the term, students attend grade masses with their class, as well as whole school masses on significant feast days and special school events.
Our school values our strong connection to our parish, under the guidance of parish priest, Father Michael, and assistant priests, Father Joseph and Father Anthony. They celebrate masses and liturgies both at school and the St Paul's church.
The school has further established partnerships in the broader church community, providing an opportunity for our student-led Mini Vinnies group to be involved in a variety of social justice and community outreach initiatives.
Our school is part of the St Paul's Catholic Parish community in Camden.
There are many aspects of parish life in which students, staff and families may become involved. All members of our parish school community are actively encouraged to be part of parish and Church life.
School prayer, liturgies and Masses are an important and enriching aspect of daily life at St Paul's. They provide opportunities to ritually celebrate the many lived experiences of our lives and the many mysteries of our faith.
Parish sacramental celebrations also provide an opportunity to celebrate students' life of faith with fellow parishioners. The parish provides programs of preparation for the Sacraments of Reconciliation, Eucharist (First Communion) and Confirmation each year. Enrolment for the sacraments occurs through the parish. The school-based Religious Education curriculum supports and enriches this program of preparation.
Participation in weekend Mass is also actively encouraged. View the Parish Mass Times here.
