Catholic Schools: Faith. Excellence. Service.

Our Catholic Schools Week is here. The theme for National Catholic Schools Week 2023 is "Catholic Schools: Faith. Excellence. Service." We observe the annual celebration week with school Mass, open house, multicultural celebrations, service projects, movie day, and grandparents day. Through these events, schools focus on the value Catholic education provides to young people and its contributions to our Church, our communities, and our nation.


What does it mean to have faith? It means that you believe in more than what this world offers. It means that you have come to know and trust the Lord more than you trust your own eyes. It is an understanding that the realities we meet with our senses are passing us by and that eternity, which is beyond, is even more real. As communities of faith, Catholic schools instill in students their destiny to become future saints.


Schools in which their children learn the value and beauty of the Church's teaching. St. Pope John Paul II said, "Not only are teachers' attitudes crucial for the success of Catholic education but also the attitudes of Catholic parents. Parents must set definite priorities, such as having schools where their children's faith will be respected, fostered, and enriched. They must also see that these values are fostered and lived in their own homes. Parents' practice of the faith, their love for Christ, is fundamental."


This is a special week for us. We are ready for a week of appreciation and celebration. Join us for all the fun activities and celebrations. Join us for any or all of the festivities.


Sincerely in Christ,

Elizabeth Joseph, Principal

Through a combination of play-based, sensory, hands-on opportunities and structured activities we concentrate on spiritual, social, emotional, physical and cognitive growth. Each of the classes focus on the age-appropriate developmental needs of the children in our care. That focus helps us create a stimulating program that provides hands-on learning centers, individualized attention and encourage each child’s individual growth.
