Step on the campus any school day and the classrooms and hallways are filled with activities that bring to life a lived experience of the seven themes and teaching of Catholic Social Justice.  Faculty and staff strive to provide an environment that blends the academic dimension of the school with the spiritual awareness of everyone being a child of God and made in His image and likeness.  The intangible gift of faith becomes tangible as the school community worships God and through the worship reaches out to the community in corporal and spiritual works of mercy.  

Sacramental preparation provides rich faith filled opportunities for spiritual growth through retreats, liturgies, meetings, and practices.  While the sacrament is a personal encounter with Christ, the experience is always within community.
