A key ministry of the Parish
is the faith formation of its members. In particular, the parish is
charged with the faith formation of children. This is accomplished in a
number of ways:
The Parish conducts two excellent
schools within Endeavour Hills, St Paul Apostle South, and St Paul Apostle North.
As well as these, St John’s
Regional College in Dandenong offers a comprehensive education for our young
people from Year 7 through to Year 12. It offers a wide curriculum, from
children with advanced skills to children with disabilities.
The children attending Government
Schools are provided for through the After School Religious Education programme
on a Tuesday afternoon.
Children preparing for Sacraments
do so through an integrated Parish Sacrament Programme supported by the schools
and parish staff.
The parish priests provide
chaplaincy services to St John’s Regional College.
that much of our faith development happens through regular participation in the
Eucharist, our priests celebrate regular liturgies with our children at class,
year level and whole school levels.
