Through the Family and Faith program, parents – as the first educators of their children – are invited into a deeper and more intimate relationship with the person of Jesus Christ.

Holy Innocents Catholic Primary School Mortlake family and faith

The Family and Faith program is an initiative of Sydney Catholic Schools in response to the New Evangelisation agenda. The program provides opportunities that aim to:

  • strengthen the faith of parents
  • connect families with the religious life of the school and the parish
  • strengthen the relationships between the school, families and parish
  • provide further energy and support to families in the development of their child – spiritually, socially and educationally.

All parents and families with children enrolled at our school are welcome to take part in the Family and Faith program. Initiatives include:

  • SPaR – Stop, Pray and Reflect for parents or parent and child
  • Play Group for 0-5 year old’s
  • St Vincent de Paul outreach activities
  • Information sessions for parents on a variety of topics
  • Parent faith formation
  • Special events throughout the year.
