Staff are encouraged to nurture their own faith and understanding through opportunities such as further study in Religious Education and Theology, prayer and reflection, retreats and pilgrimages and other faith formation activities.

St Mary’s staff members are active witnesses of the Catholic faith and are committed to bringing the Gospel message alive in students. Staff work to enable understanding of the Sisters of Mercy charism and our school values.

All staff are encouraged to regularly develop and deepen their own spirituality and religious knowledge so that they can enhance their capacity to develop and nurture the spirituality of the students in their care.

The staff at St Mary’s Catholic Primary School Erskineville participate in an annual spirituality day as part of their faith formation. Each member is encouraged and supported to develop their own religious knowledge and spirituality through regular prayer and ongoing academic studies of Religion.
