Pastoral Care


As a faith community, we are called to do more than worship – we are called to follow in Jesus’ footsteps and work to create a better world for all. 

St Patrick’s Basilica coordinates a number of pastoral care programs that provide for the spiritual, social and physical wellbeing of all members of our community, but particularly those on the margins.

It is through this work that we come to more closely know God, and live a life in His image.

St Pat's Community Support Centre

Since its foundation by an Oblate at the Basilica in 1972, St Patrick's Community Support Centre has been there for those experiencing, and at risk of, homelessness in Fremantle.
