Our school provides opportunities for students, staff and parents to know and celebrate our Catholic faith. This is done through the religious life of our school. Members of our community experience a rich liturgical and prayer life, celebration of the Sacraments, faith formation, social outreach activities, and opportunities to share faith with each other and with youth from other schools in the Archdiocese.

A strong emphasis on the knowledge of formal prayers and a range of prayer experiences encourages staff and students’ commitment to the Catholic life of the school. We pray together as a community daily with different prayer focuses across the year, remembering that when we pray we are entering into deeper conversation with God. The Angelus, led by Year 6 students, is prayed daily at noon across the school.
