Mission Statement

Patrician Brothers’ College, Blacktown, is a friendly and caring community where each person is challenged to grow in a Catholic Environment.

We recognise that such growth is a life-long process involving the individual’s spiritual, emotional, moral, intellectual, social, interpersonal and physical development.

This Catholic community strongly believes in and demonstrates the Gospel values of faith, justice, tolerance, hope, honesty, service,trust, forgiveness and respect. Our community also values the Patrician ideal of friendliness and love of all creation, especially the poor.

We strive for excellence and foster a love of learning. By encouraging staff, pupils and parents to work and pray together we build a community where “Christ Reigns”.

Christ with me,
Christ before me, 
Christ behind me, 
Christ in me, 
Christ beneath me, 
Christ above me, 
Christ on my right hand 
Christ on my left. 
Christ where I lie, 
Christ where I sit, 
Christ where I arise, 
Christ in the heart of everyone who thinks of me. 
Christ in the mouth of everyone who speaks to me. 
Christ in every eye that sees me. 
Christ in every ear that hears me. 
Salvation is of the Lord, 
Salvation is of Christ, 
May your Salvation, O Lord, be ever with us.
