Faith & Mission


We’re part of the Lower North Shore Parish

St Thomas Catholic School is part of the Lower North Shore Parish. Our church is St Thomas Church, Willoughby, located next to the school.

Our school community is supported by Rev Jose Philip OSH, Rev Chima Ofor, Rev Biju Mathew and Rev Peter Dowd. The Parish of the Lower North Shore’s office is situated on the corner of Forsyth and High Streets, opposite Keeler Hardware.

Family Mass with Children’s Liturgy is at 9.30am Sunday mornings with a cup of tea to follow.

Our sacramental program is run by the parish and is supported with specific units in the school curriculum.

Whole School Masses are held during the school year at St Thomas Church. Students are also involved in Liturgies and special Family Grade Masses held on Sundays.

In weekend Family Mass, children are invited to serve in ministries including singing and altar serving.

During the Sunday 9:30am Mass there is a parent-run children’s liturgy in the school staffroom.

The school and parish work together to fundraise for, and increase awareness of, social justice causes.
