Living Our Faith

 

The Board Mission St​atement:

Walking together in Christ's light with parish and family, we are called to build a safe and inclusive Catholic learning community and to serve as partners in the formation of life-long learners by:

 

  • living our faith;
  • promoting educational achievement and innovation;
  • fostering stewardship, leadership and social justice.

 

 

 

Board Mission Prayer

LOVING GOD
Thank You for calling us to share in Your work

through the gift of Catholic Education.
As we walk together in Christ’s light

with our families and parishes,
strengthen us as we strive to embrace the call of the Gospel,
and bring new life and hope to our world.
As we work to build inclusive and safe Catholic learning communities,

may we be witnesses to Your love and inspire excellence.

God of All,
Help us serve our young people as we live our faith.
May they grow in their love of learning and love of You.
May they be blessed with courage and perseverance.
Help them to find their true identity in You and

empower them to be good stewards,
building a world of reverence, peace, justice and joy.

We ask this through Jesus,

the One who teaches us how to live and serve.
Amen

 

 

 

live like Jesus Called to Serve

The scrolling pictures above show the Works of Mercy winning posters.

These posters are in every classroom in our system to help teach about the Corporal and Spiritual Works of Mercy. 

They are a beautiful part of our tradition and they give everyday examples of how to live faith.
Congratulations to Georgia, Emma, Sienna, Tracy and Jake. 
Thanks to everyone who submitted a poster for giving glory to God by sharing your talents.

 

I AM A BELIEVER!!!!!

 

The Fruits of the Holy Spirit

are being highlighted in our schools.  

They are part of our Catholic tradition

and they can be described as character traits that one would observe
in someone who is trying to live a life of faith
under the guidance of the Holy Spirit.

Expect to find these highlighted in our schools this term.
