Message from our Bishop

Bishop Gregory O'Kelly SJ.jpg

Welcome to this website which shows some of the richness and variety of the work that goes in to making our Catholic schools such places of welcome and growth for young lives.

An eighteenth century Jesuit school master once wrote that the education of youth is the renewal of the world. With all its very many schools throughout the length and breadth of Australia, it is clear that the Church in our country has taken its commitment to the proper formation of young people very seriously.

Your child is a gift of God’s love to you, and we are very conscious that in entrusting your child to one of our Catholic schools you are entrusting one of your greatest gifts. We thank you for that act of trust, and for the commitment to the ideals and principles of your Catholic school that you will wish to uphold.

Working with you, may our schools help provide wonderful citizens for the future, people alive to their responsibilities and the Christian values that underpins our work.

Welcome.

Bishop Greg O'Kelly
