Locations: Where Do We Teach?

SRE Catechists volunteer to teach in public schools located across six regions in the Diocese of Parramatta: Blacktown, Blue Mountains, Hawkesbury, The Hills, Nepean and Parramatta. Each region has a Regional Coordinator who supports Parish Coordinators and Parish Teams to recruit and help SRE Catechists in their designated schools.

We can do no great things; only small things with great love.
