Mission Statement of the Religious Education Department 

We at The Palmer Catholic Academy, inspired by the words of his holiness Pope Francis believe that “proclaiming Christ means showing that to believe in and to follow him is not only something right and true, but also something beautiful, capable of filling life with new splendour and profound joy, even in the midst of difficulties.”  130 We seek to promote “growth in fidelity to the Gospel way of life”, we are attracted by “the ideal of a life of wisdom, self-fulfilment and enrichment.”
