A SPIRITUAL OASIS

THE BEGINNINGS

OUR COMMUNITY

At the beginning of 2017, Michael Whelan SM, Parish Priest, commissioned an icon of St Dimpna who is the patron saint of people in mental and emotional distress – especially those who have been sexually abused.   Her feast day is on May 15.  The icon will form the focus of an annual devotion to St Dimpna each May, with prayers especially for those who are in distress as a result of sexual abuse.  

For more information contact the parish;  email: office@stpatschurchhill.org; phone (02) 9254-9855.

ST PATRICK’S SAFEGUARDING POLICY

For more than 170 years St Patrick’s has been a spiritual oasis in Sydney. There is a fine tradition of mercy and reconciliation here. Let us work together to ensure that everything possible is done to go on developing that tradition. It is a gift that grows richer with time. It is also a task that will never end.

To keep faith with that tradition, we must take account of the changing times. In particular, we must take account of the findings of the Royal Commission into Institutional Responses to Child Sexual.   Click on the link to know what special steps we are  taking at St Patrick’s   https://secureservercdn.net/198.12.144.78/j7k.5d9.myftpupload.com/wp-content/uploads/Safeguarding-policy-at-St-Pats-January-2020.pdf
