Parish Morning Teas are usually held on the first Sunday of the month after the 8.30am Mass. Please check the Parish calendar for up-to-date times.
Children’s Liturgy began in St Patrick’s Parish in 1989 due to a perceived need to allow young children to become more engaged in the celebration of Sunday Mass. It continues today with Kindy and Primary School aged children gathering at 8.30 am Mass in the Children’s Chapel where they can be part of the whole community while enjoying activities designed to engage them and increase their understanding of the Liturgy.
All children are welcome. Please check the Bulletin for specific dates.

Fr Gaetano Nanni 1919 – 2012
Fr Nanni arrived in Fremantle in 1951. He worked with great dedication, compassion and much love to the people of the Perth Archdiocese for those 61 years.
He will be greatly missed by many, particularly his Oblate brothers, family in Italy, and the community of St Patrick’s. We thank God for the gift of his life, and may he rest in peace.
Being Parish Priest of a Catholic community large or small is a demanding and never ending task. For that reason, while having a Parish Pastoral Council is not mandated, it is very strongly recommended within the Diocese.
In the Fremantle Parish of St Patrick’s Basilica and St Anne’s Church, the PPC meets with the Parish Priest on a regular basis. The role of its members is to listen to the Parish Priest, contribute ideas and suggestions and support the Priest in his effective running of the parish. PPC. Members can also be a line of contact between parishioners and the Parish Priest to improve all important communication within the parish.
The Spirit of Welcome is an important feature of gatherings for Eucharist in the Fremantle Catholic Community both at the Basilica of St Patrick and the Church of St Anne.
If you would like to be a member of our Welcoming Team, please contact the Parish Office.
Everyone gathering for Eucharist in our Churches is encouraged to greet those sitting around them.
