Our Catholic Identity and Parish

St John’s is a faith-filled community. Your interactions with our staff, students and community will demonstrate our love of Christ, neighbour and the environment.

The religious life of our school immerses students in the Catholic tradition and provides students with:

  • opportunities to know, understand and celebrate our Catholic faith
  • a thorough Religious Education curriculum
  • celebrations of the sacraments
  • social outreach activities and opportunities 
  • experiences of a rich liturgical and prayer life

Our school also has a rich heritage in the tradition of the Sisters of the Good Samaritan. They were instrumental in establishing a school community inspired by faith in the good news of Jesus.

We are inspired to continue the journey of faith and are nurtured by the charism of this order to achieve our mission of providing a quality Catholic community that enables each person to reach full potential in the light of our school motto, 'Walk in Peace and Joy'.



Our school is part of the St John the Evangelist (St John's) Catholic Parish Campbelltown community. We have a strong connection to our parish, under the guidance of our parish priest, Fr John, and assistant priest, Fr Feleki. 

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. 

School prayer, liturgies and Masses are an important and enriching aspect of daily life at St John's. They provide opportunities to ritually celebrate the many lived experiences of our lives and the many mysteries of our faith.

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 here.
