Parish

Whitefriars School is a part of  the Croydon Park Parish.

Families are invited to participate in the life of the parish through involvement at Sunday Mass at any of the three Mass centres:

  • Mater Dei Church Woodville Park: 6:00pm Saturday
    • Vietnamese Mass: 5:00pm Sunday
  • St Patrick’s Church Mansfield: 8:30am Sunday
  • St Margaret Mary’s Church Croydon: 10:30am Sunday

A Junior Parish Council meets regularly and is led by young people in our parish who lead activities for children.

The School Boards of our three Parish Schools, namely Whitefriars, St Margaret Mary’s and St Patrick’s, meet regularly.

Our Year 7 students are involved in a Christian leadership programme, “Journey to Emmaus”, together with Year 7’s from St Margaret Mary’s and St Patrick’s Schools.

Celebration of Sacraments

Families who would like their children to celebrate Sacraments are invited into the Parish Sacramental Programme. Families from across the parish gather to prepare for and then celebrate the Sacraments of Reconciliation, First Communion and Confirmation.

Our Parish Sacramental Co-ordinator and Assistant Principals in Religious Identity and Mission (APRIMs) from our three Parish schools, together with Fr Maurice Shinnick, our Parish Priest, work with parents to support them in preparing their children for the celebration of Sacraments.
