Connecting the Parish and School for Christ-Centred Mision


Fr John Pearce and Paige Bullen explore ways in which to integrate the work of the Parish and the role of the priest into the schools and establishing a united mission in Christ. Fr John and Paige present a variety of practical ways in which this has been successfully implemented in their own parish at St Bridget’s Parish, Marrickville; helping students to recognise and become familiar with the priests, the sacramental life and become more involved and integrated in the life of the parish in a warm and welcoming environment.


This presentation was part of Proclaim 2016 on the theme “On a Mission of Mercy: Evangelising Parishes”, organised on behalf of the Australian Catholic Bishops Conference and hosted by the Catholic Diocese of Broken Bay.
