We are proud of our tradition as a Catholic school with a Christian ethos, serving primarily the Catholic pupils in the greater Banbridge area.

We welcome pupils of all denominations and other faiths.

All pupils study Religious Education at both Key Stage Three and Four.

We are fortunate to have an Oratory in which pupils and their Religious Education teachers to spend time in prayer and meditative worship.

Our school chaplain serves the whole school community offering opportunity for prayerful reflection and worship. The Celebration of Mass takes place at the beginning of each school year.

Special Liturgies are held for parents, pupils and teachers to welcome our Year 8 pupils and to acknowledge leavers at the end of their time in St Patrick’s.

Sacraments are celebrated on many occasions and opportunities for reconciliation are provided in Advent and Lent.

A special remembrance service takes place during the month of November.

Counselling will be provided for pupils who suffer bereavement or other major trauma through ‘New Life Counselling’.
