Pastoral Care of our Students, Families and Staff

Welcome to St Joseph’s school community where the welfare of our students, their families and our staff is paramount.

I am honoured to serve as chaplain to this community and look forward to sharing your family’s school journey with you.

As Chaplain, I provide pastoral and spiritual support to students, families and staff, support the religious life of the school community, foster the experience of Catholic community within the school, support the engagement of the school community in social justice action and encourage and facilitate connections with school and parish communities.

The famed English author Douglas Adams once wrote

“To give real service you must add something which cannot be bought or measured with money, and that is sincerity and integrity.”

These words resonate deeply with me and I hope that sincerity and integrity will be at the heart of my work in our school community.

I am present at school each Thursday and Friday and ask that you contact me if I can help in any way. My email address is  and my contact number is 3201 6188.

Together let’s walk with God, build community and change the world.
