Catholic Community

Home / Catholic Community
At St Francis, we provide opportunities throughout the year to celebrate Catholic life. The College has a good relationship with its Parish Priest, Father Bosco Son SVD and Assistant Priest, Father Joseph Dondeti SVD. Class Masses are celebrated on the 1st and 3rd Wednesdays of the Month at the College. Our Priests also celebrate Masses and liturgies for Ash Wednesday, Easter, the Feast of the Blessed Edmund Rice, Feast of St Francis of Assisi and End of Year Mass. Masses are celebrated both at the College at Edmondson Park and in Mary Mother of the Church Parish Church at Macquarie Fields.
Our Priests also visit the College informally to meet staff and students and make themselves available to present content in Religious Education classes when invited by the staff.
St Francis Catholic College is a Diocesan P-12 Catholic School in the Edmund Rice tradition. Our school was established as a result of a partnership with the Diocese of Wollongong and Edmund Rice Education Australia (EREA). We also aim to work closely with the Catholic Parish of Mary Mother of the Church, Macquarie Fields and neighbouring Catholic Parishes.
