Where Ambition Meets Compassion


Parish Involvement

St Patrick’s College is part of the Mary Help of Christians Parish, North Ward, with St Joseph’s Church being our place of worship. 

Our residential students attend mass at St Joseph's Church each Sunday during the term.  The Parish celebrates a Youth Mass once a month which we encourage our students attend.  Once a term, our students are responsible for the organisation of this mass where they choose the hymns, do the readings and are altar servers.

The connection between the Parish and the College are very strong.  Parish priest, Fr Mick Peters, is most supportive of the participation of the students in all aspects of the Parish community.  He presides at our masses and liturgies, and if time allows, supports our Retreat program by attending and presiding over the liturgy or mass component.
