Our Catholic school is part of the Catholic Church. We work in partnership with our local parish and priests in order to enrich the spiritual life of the students, staff and families of our school, especially through the celebration of the Sacraments.
St Patrick’s College Sutherland has considerable involvement from the Parish Priests from our Feeder Parishes; St. Patrick’s Sutherland, St. Catherine Labouré Gymea, Our Lady Star of the Sea, Miranda and St Joseph’s Como/Oyster Bay. Each year, students return to their local parishes to celebrate Ash Wednesday and the Feast of the Assumption bringing together the primary and secondary students with their local parishioners.
Our Parish Priests are actively involved in school liturgies, reconciliations, and retreats. With the support of these Parishes, we are further able to provide the opportunity to our students to attend weekly Parish Mass at Sutherland, train to become an Altar Server and Extraordinary Ministers of the Eucharist and support them when preparing for World Youth Day, Australian Catholic Youth Festival and other Archdiocesan initiatives.
