Teach the Gospel to our Children - Become a Catechist

Right now we need support from people in the community to help us administer this wonderful and necessary program. What you need to know:

  • Weekly committment of 1 hour.
  • Great team to work with.
  • No teaching experience required.
  • All resources and instruction provided.


St Francis and St Joseph proudly supports the children in our Parish area by coordinating the weekly catechist ministry, which visits the local primary State Schools to teach the catholic faith and help prepare students for the reception of the sacraments of Reconciliation, Holy Communion and Confirmation. 

You will be supported by a team of both clergy and lay people.  All it takes is approximately 30-45 minutes of your time each week and we will gladly work around your availability. The classes are held weekday mornings during school term and provide an important link between the parish and the State School community.

We currently serve at Glenmore Rd Public School, Double Bay Public School and Woollahra Public School.

So come answer the call to plant that seed of faith among our young. Take the first step now and contact the Parish Office on 9331 4043.
