Our Catholic Identity & Parish

Holy Family is a school that prides itself on being Catholic. We strive to bring to life our vision of being a welcoming Catholic school community that endeavours to be Christ to all. When we gather as a school community, we are often reminded that just as Jesus grew and learned, we are learning too.

Holy Family expresses and gives witness to its Catholic identity, ensuring that prayer and liturgy are central to all aspects of school life. Throughout the year, students attend mass on significant feast days and special school events.

Our school values its relationship with the parish, which is currently under the administration of Reverend Henry Adler SVD. Father Henry celebrates masses and liturgies both at school and the Holy Family church.

The school has further established partnerships in the broader church community, providing an opportunity for our student-led Mini Vinnies group to be involved in a variety of social justice and community outreach initiatives.


Our school is part of the Holy Family Catholic Parish community in Ingleburn.

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 Holy Family. 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.
