Parramatta Catholic Foundation proudly supports the Confraternity of Christian Doctrine, and Holy Spirit Seminary, which work to spread the faith.

The Confraternity of Christian Doctrine provides faith formation and Christian learning to students in State schools. The main areas taught are the teachings of Jesus, Gospel values and the Catholic Church.

The great fruit of this ministry is assisting students to encounter Christ.

“A reward from this work is to see students praying to God, sharing their joys and sorrows… I’m also moved when students freely approach teachers years later, recalling their SRE classes. Some of these students go on to become SRE teachers themselves.”

Cecilia Zammit, Director of The Confraternity of Christian Doctrine

The Holy Spirit Seminary forms young men for the priesthood and for a life of service, modelled on Christ. It does this by providing a holistic approach to developing seminarians spiritually, academically and in human virtue.

“We have three key areas of formation for our seminarians. The first level deepens their relationship with God. The second level enriches their relationship with family, friends and peers. And the third level expands their contribution to society. Integrating these three levels prepares our future priests for the demands of this ministry.”

Fr John Hogan, Rector of Holy Spirit Seminary
