Family and Faith

Family and Faith

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.

With the support of our school family educator, parents at St Joseph’s Catholic Primary School Oatley are provided with a variety of opportunities that connect their family with the religious life of the school and the parish.

Examples of these include:

  • Weekly playgroup in the hall.
  • Prayer cards to celebrate births.
  • Sympathy cards to recognise loss.
  • ‘Walk and Talk Mornings’ when the school family educator invites families for a community walk to a coffee shop. Time is made to connect and talk about family and faith.
  • Parent excursions also happen throughout the year. Examples include visits to St Mary’s Cathedral, Mary MacKillop Place, Sculptures by the Sea and Stations of the Cross at Woronora.
