Leadership and Governance

Experienced Governance

Parent and community representation on all of our governance bodies brings a wealth of relevant experience and a unique yet essential perspective that enhances the governance of Nazareth Catholic Community. 

Our Governing Council is responsible for the governance and to further the vision of Nazareth Catholic Community. 

This includes supporting the leadership team in strategic planning and guiding the direction of Nazareth, nurturing the religious, educational and community dimensions and to develop genuine partnerships between NCC, families, the wider community and the local parishes. The Council is also responsible for the management of the Community’s financial and administrative affairs including compliance with all its legal obligations.

Our Stewardship Committee oversees and reports to the Governing Council on issues relating to the financial and administrative affairs of Nazareth. 

The Faith and Education Committee oversees and reports to Governing Council on the religious, educational and community dimensions of Nazareth.

As members of Nazareth Catholic Community, we each have something to contribute. If for you, the work of the Governing Council or its committees is the ‘best fit’ for the skills and experience you have to offer, it is an opportunity well worth considering.
