Leadership Message

Happy Easter Everyone! I hope you and your families had a joy-filled and blessed Easter. As a Catholic school, Easter is our greatest celebration. It is the foundation of who we are, what we are, and why we are as a community of faith and learning. Easter is a reminder that we are committed to forming our students' hearts, bodies, minds, and souls. We are truly blessed with amazing students, parents, and staff and thankful every day for the blessing of each other as we continue our walk with Christ. Please join us on Thursday at 1:00 for our Easter celebration. May the blessings of this season remind us all how much God loves us.

We praise you in this Easter season.

Change our lives, change our hearts to be messengers of Easter joy and hope.

We make our prayer through Jesus Christ, our risen Lord forever.

Celebrate Earth Day April 22!

Keeping shoes out of the landfill and into the hands of people that need them is an important action that we can all do this upcoming Earth Day.
