St. Mary's Catholic School partners with families in the formation of children as disciples of Jesus and His Kingdom, through FAITH, SCHOLARSHIP, LEADERSHIP, and SERVICE.

Authenticity - Virtue of the Week

Big picture

The strength to be always true and real. AUTHENTICITY is necessary for everything in life. We need to be “real” for ourselves, our teammates, our family and this TEAM. If not, we will never win when it counts; trying to be something that we aren’t and never will be.

Challenge yourself to be AUTHENTIC with friends, teachers and family members this week. Say what you mean and do what you say. Find the courage to be you no matter the perceived cost may be.
