SMMS FACULTY 2017-18
Mission Driven For College & Heaven
"More than a master who teaches, a Catholic educator is a person who gives testimony by his or her life. Shortly after his election, Pope Benedict XVI spoke about the kind of witness required of all teachers of the faith, including those in Catholic schools:
The central figure in the work of educating . . . is specifically the form of witness. . . . The witness never refers to himself but to something, or rather, to Someone greater than he, whom he has encountered and whose dependable goodness he has sampled. Thus, every educator and witness finds an unequaled model in Jesus Christ, the Father's great witness [cf. John 8:28]."
More than do this on an individual level, the SMMS Team is committed to collective witness of our mission to empower our students and our community to witness the Gospel and grow in excellence through faith, academics and service.
The ideal end results? College & Heaven!
