Our Parish

​St Vincent’s School is one of three schools in the Surfers Paradise Parish. Together with the parish and wider community we engage in the ministry of the Catholic Church. The beautiful Sacred Heart Church is adjacent to our school and we regularly celebrate prayer assemblies and liturgies here. 

The Archdiocesan Sacramental Policy places the preparation for the Sacraments with the family, and the celebration within the Parish setting. The co-ordination of the program rests with the Parish Pastoral Associate. 

Families are invited to become active members of our parish family and to celebrate Mass at one of the three churches in our parish; Sacred Heart (Clear Island Waters), Stella Maris (Broadbeach), or St Vincent’s (Surfers Paradise).
