Mission Statement

We believe that parents have the primary and sacred responsibility to educate their children in the faith.  We strive to assist parents in this obligation by providing a basic knowledge of the Catholic faith and traditions for each student. We believe that all children are part of our parish community and make an important contribution to its life.

Goals

To provide a loving, caring and spiritual atmosphere where each child may come to a greater understanding of God and the Roman Catholic Church. To provide an environment that will ensure the right of each child to learn respect for God, self and others. To strive to make the Gospel both alive and living, by promoting social justice.
