Parish

School of the Nativity is committed to nurturing our students’ spirituality and has a close association with the Aberfoyle Park Parish adjacent to our school. The parish, led by Father Santiago welcomes students and families of all faiths to experience the rich traditions of the Catholic faith. Students and their families are invited to participate in:

  • The celebration of weekly class Masses and morning tea afterwards
  • Preparing for and celebrating the sacraments of Reconciliation, Confirmation and Holy Communion
  • Ministries within the weekend Masses – welcoming, reading, commentating, being extraordinary minsters, sacristan, music
  • A Wine and Cheese night for school parents
  • A family picnic
  • ‘Mums on the Move’ held each school holidays
  • Care Factor, an innovative program for 11-14 year olds held three times a year

School of the Nativity support the parish conference of St Vincent de Paul as well as Caritas’ Project Compassion during Lent. These initiatives are led by the student Social Justice Team.
