Prayer is an important part of our regular school life at
St Joseph's

At St Joseph’s School our Catholic heritage in the Mercy tradition is shown in our personal interactions with others. Aligning with our school motto “With Christ We Grow”, we provide a multitude of opportunities for our community to celebrate our faith. Children are exposed to and have the opportunity to participate in a variety of prayer forms, both within the classroom and as a school community, including attendance at Mass, special all-school liturgies, seasonal devotions, and daily community prayer.

Prayer is an important part of our regular school life at St Joseph’s. We prioritise opportunities to gather together each day to connect as a community, with prayer a central element to these gatherings. All members of our school community are welcome to join us for these celebrations.

School Prayer

Heavenly Father,

You call us to grow with Christ,

as our patron, St Joseph, earthly Father of Jesus,

has shown us;


 to continue the Mercy tradition,

inspired by Catherine McAuley,

by living out each day our School values of

Compassion, Excellence, Justice, Respect and Service;


to make Jesus real through the way we

Greet, Treat and Speak;

and to be caretakers

of your beautiful creation.


Help us to respond to your call with

Jesus in our hearts,
