St Jerome’s Parish, Punchbowl, centered on Christ, continues to grow as a community of believers, through Word and Sacrament. 



St Jerome’s Parish derives its direction from the words of St Jerome, “To Know the Scriptures is to know Christ.” This can be lived out by:

  • Listening and living the Word of God
  • Witnessing to our belief through sharing our faith
  • Empowering and supporting our parishioners, on their faith journey, in ways that will impact their personal and communal lives.
  • Encouraging each member of the community, through full and active participation, to share with others the gifts and talents received from God.
  • Acknowledging and affirming the role of parishioners in their liturgical, pastoral, social and administrative ministries.
  • Ministering to the elderly, the sick and the marginalized.
  • Promoting the role of young people and families and addressing their needs
