Catholic School Ministries

Our Catholic School ministries support the Pastor and Principal in social, spiritual, administrative, and fund raising activities.  The Church sponsors and supports schools because it recognizes that, for a people of faith, the wisdom and culture transmitted by a school are enriched and put into perspective by the Gospel message and by the history of Christian people. Our school’s mission is to enhance student learning in an environment that evokes the Catholic principles of love, respect, honesty, integrity and service to others.
