Our Catholic Identity & Parish


Our school is situated within the St Mary MacKillop Oran Park Catholic Parish community.

There are many aspects of parish life in which students, staff and families may become involved. All members of our parish school community are actively encouraged to be part of parish and Church life.

The local clergy, and particularly the Parish Priest, Fr David Catterall, is regularly involved with St Justin’s, especially in collaborating with the Principal, Religious Education Coordinator (REC) and other senior teachers.

School prayer, liturgies and Masses are an important and enriching aspect of daily life at St Justin's. They provide opportunities to ritually celebrate the many lived experiences of our lives and the many mysteries of our faith. Masses and Liturgies of the Word are celebrated for the children on a regular basis during school hours each term.

Parish sacramental celebrations also provide an opportunity to celebrate students' life of faith with fellow parishioners. The parish provides programs of preparation for the Sacraments of Reconciliation, Eucharist (First Communion) and Confirmation each year. Enrolment for the sacraments occurs through the parish. The school-based Religious Education curriculum supports and enriches this program of preparation.

Participation in weekend Mass is also actively encouraged. View the Parish Mass Times.
