Home Catholic Life and Religious Education A Message from our Pastor

Message From our Pastor

St Paul’s Catholic Primary School is an important ministry of the parish of St Paul’s, Albion Park. The parish understands that faith is no longer something that can be presumed, and all of us need to work together to allow faith to grow and mature in our lives.

In the early 1880s the Parish Priest at the time, Fr Petre, made a request to Mother Mary MacKillop, now St Mary of the Cross, to found a Catholic school at Albion Park. Originally known as St Joseph's School, this small bush ‘one building’ school commenced with three Sisters and fifty students. From humble beginnings and a small number of enrolled students, St Paul’s School has grown into the school it is today – a school that strives to be faithful to the school motto of ‘Constant in Faith’ and to develop confident, independent, life-long learners that also strive to be committed followers of Jesus.

As a Parish school, St Paul’s is an integral part of the Parish and of the wider Church community. The spiritual growth, welfare and education of students are a shared responsibility of the Parish Priest, Principal, staff and parents.

We celebrate the blessings our parish school has received since 1882 and look forward to more exciting years to come.

Grace and peace,

Fr Richard Healey
Parish Priest of St Paul's
