Whitefriars Catholic School is a part of the Croydon Park Catholic Parish.

Families are invited to participate in the life of the worshipping community at any of the three Mass centres:

  • St Patrick’s Church Mansfield Park: 8:30am Sunday (English)

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

Our Year 6 children are involved in a Christian leadership program called, “Journey to Emmaus”, together with the Year 6 children from St Margaret Mary’s School.

 

Celebration of Sacraments

Families who would like their children to celebrate Sacraments are invited into the Parish Sacramental Program. 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 Charles Lukati, our Parish Priest, and Father Long Hai Nguyen, our Assistant Parish Priest, work with parents to support them in preparing their children for the celebration of Sacraments.
