A wonderful piece of the rich tapestry that makes up our community is the Catholic education system and its ongoing contribution to the mission of Christ in the Church and the world.

Founded in the nineteenth century, during a time of great challenge, the Melbourne Catholic community created an enduring system that now numbers over 300 schools.

The broad spectrum of schools includes local parish primary schools, regional colleges and special education facilities. The field also includes Catholic universities, chaplaincies, teaching colleges and other academic faculties that service an ever-changing educational enterprise.

The commitment to and participation in the Catholic school system by parishioners guarantees its vibrancy and ongoing stability. Christ’s promise to be ‘with’ us until the end of time can be witnessed each and every day through this ministry of Catholic education.
