Through the Family and Faith program, parents – as the first educators of their children – are invited into a deeper and more intimate relationship with the person of Jesus Christ.
The Family and Faith program is an initiative of Sydney Catholic Schools, in response to the New Evangelisation agenda. St Vincent’s Catholic Primary School Ashfield is fortunate to have a family educator.
The role of the family educator is to nurture strong and meaningful parish, parent, and school relationships and to explore new models of supporting the spiritual, social and educational formation of families. The family educator is based within the school and works closely with the parish priest and parish pastoral associate.
Our family educator invites our school, parish and precinct community to a variety of spiritual events, information sessions and activities. These events and programs provide opportunities that aim to:
strengthen the faith of parents
connect families with the religious life of the school and the parish
strengthen the relationships between the school, families and parish
provide further energy and support to families in the development of their child – spiritually, socially and educationally.
